Unravelled Review and Giveaway

Two wars. Two affairs. One marriage. Set at the intersection of love and war, Unravelled delivers a page-turning mixture of emotion and sacrifice.

Edward Jamieson survived his duty in World War I as a signaller. Returning to life in Canada, eventually he meets and falls in love with Ann Winston. They marry and have two children, life is good until 1935 when they receive an invitation to attend the Vimy war memorial ceremony in France. Edward is uncertain about returning to the memories of the loss of war, and the memories of Helene Noisette, the love who got away. 

What ensues is a series of decisions that put their marriage in peril. Ann and Edward work to put their marriage back together as Hitler sets the stage for the Second World War. WWII sees Edward enlist with a top secret spy training, which once again forces him to keep secrets from Ann. In turn, Ann volunteers as a counselor for grieving women. The stress and agony of war wage once again on Edward and Ann's marriage. 

As the title suggests, stories unravel on the stage of the world wars. M.K. Tod creates a narrative that presents an honest look at marriage after adultery. It is a fantastic mix of fiction supported by research and nonfiction. What drew me to the story was an incredible balance of graphic detail and humanity.
