By the author Kate Mosse of the “New York Times”-bestselling “Labyrinth,” “The Winter Ghosts“ is a story of two lives touched by war and transformed by courage. The Great War has been over for ten years, but Freddie Watson still hasn’t recovered from the loss of his brother. Even now, on holiday in south-west France, he cannot escape his grief. So in the winter of 1928, still seeking some kind of resolution to the horrors of World War I, Freddie is travelling through the beautiful but forbidding French Pyrenees.
During a snowstorm, his yellow Austin car spins off the mountain road. Dazed, he stumbles through the woods, emerging in a tiny village, where he finds an inn to wait out the blizzard. There he meets Fabrissa, a lovely young woman also mourning a lost generation.
Over the course of one night, Fabrissa and Freddie share their stories. By the time dawn breaks, Freddie will have unearthed a tragic, centuries-old mystery, and discovered his own role in the life of this remote town.
