A Time for Silence
Though ensonced in an exclusive Belgian finishing school, Lucinda discovers that she cannot always be protected from life. She learns the truth of her friend Annabelndia's romantic escapades just as the terror of World War I sends the German army sweeping across Europe, sending the girls fleeing for home. Escorted by handsome Major Marcus Merrivale, they struggle toward England, unaware that a shared secret they cannot discuss is a ticking bomb, waiting to dash their desires. They do not realize that the harsh necessities of war are killing the world they once knew, or that the sly invasion into their ives of a sinister enemy will challenge friendship and destroy love--and that Lucinda's cherished dreams may never come true....
