The Autumn of the Ace, Hardback Book

The Autumn of the Ace Hardback

Hardback

Description

Louis de Bernieres is the master of historical fiction that makes you both laugh and cry, in the perfect nostalgic read to escape with this autumn. Is it ever too late to change your story? Daniel Pitt was an RAF fighter in the First World War and an espionage agent for the SOE in the Second.

Now the conflicts he faces are closer to home. Daniel's marriage has fractured beyond repair and Daniel's relationship with his son, Bertie, has been a failure since Bertie was a small boy.

But after his brother Archie's death, Daniel is keen for new perspectives.

He first travels to Peshawar to bury Archie in the place he loved best, and then finds himself in Canada, avoiding his family and friends back in England.

But some bonds are hard to break. Daniel and Bertie's different experiences of war, although devastating, also bring with them the opportunity for the two to reconnect.

If only they can find a way to move on from the past. 'De Bernieres is a singular, cherishable voice.' Mail on Sunday
