Glint of light on broken glass

Monaghan, Jason, author

'Glint of Light on Broken Glass' begins when 16 year-old George is called up for the island of Guernsey's militia, just before the Great War. Guernsey is poor, backward and haunted by superstition, and when George attempts to step up, he is quickly rejected as lame. However, will anything change for him, when out of the chipped corner of his glasses, he sees a beautiful woman following him, which makes him believe that she can tell him his future? More than a story of the Great War, 'Glint of Light on Broken Glass' explores a new relationship that George cannot escape. With the beautiful Edith by his side, things could be perfect, but she only has eyes for his tough, ambitious brother, Artie. As the world beyond the island is engulfed in turmoil, life for the three young people quickly becomes complicated
