A Very Long Engagement

Set in the devastating First World War where human lives were insignificant and slaughtered, A Very Long Engagement shows us the picture behind the front line. The tenacious Mathilde chased after every possible clue leading to repudiating the report that his dear fiancé Manech was dead along with other four ill-fated soldiers. A detective mystery in the guise of a love story, it tells readers one of the many painful tales that might be lost in the dirt and filth of history. The translation is smooth and natural. Long though it is, this work of fiction is still compelling and enjoyable.
