For fans of The Tattooist of Auschwitz and Where The Crawdads Sing comes a moving story, inspired by real events, about how hope and love will prevail against all odds.

In the aftermath of war, everyone is searching for answers.

Edie's husband Francis never came home and was declared 'missing, believed killed'. But when she receives a mysterious photograph of him in the post, hope flares and she begins to search.

Harry photographs gravesites on the Western Front, hired by grieving families. Plagued by memories of his last conversation with Francis, he has never stopped searching for his brother.

After years apart, their search brings them together. As they uncover the truth they are haunted by the past and their own complex feelings - towards Francis, and towards each other.

Are some questions better left unanswered?

The Photographer of the Lost

The Photographer of the Lost to be a beautiful and profoundly moving story, written from an original perspective, of the aftermath of the Great War and of two people exposed to the tragedy, and of their guilt, confusion and uncertainty of surviving.
Story of how the war destroyed landscapes and people’s lives causing that whole generation to live with psychological scarring and children, wives, mothers to have to live with their tragic loss.

Amirah Bukhari

The Photographer of the Lost is a stunning and memorable read. This book focus on the devastating effects of wars on people left behind.
