After Youve Gone: A Novel by Jeffrey Lent

A striking epic and a great love story, War Gardens moves beyond the northeastern territory described in the first two books of best-selling author Jeffrey Lent and into a broader America as it transforms itself over the course of the two world wars. War Gardens opens in a remote Nova Scotian fishing village, where the young Henry Dorn is being groomed to assume leadership of the familys fishing enterprise. But an encounter with a professor from the United States awakens him to greater possibilities. After marrying his mentors daughter, Olivia, the two struggle to cope with the forces of World War I and then the heady, early days of Madison Avenue 1920s advertising boom. With the advent of the Second World War, Henry and Olivias only son, Robert, secretly enlists with the British army. Following the war, Henry travels to Holland to discover the truth behind his sons life. After learning of his sons service to the Dutch Resistance, Henry faces a great moral challenge. With keen insights into family relationships and the capricious nature of life, War Gardens offers a transfixing and absorbing tale with lessons for our own turbulent times.
