Amy knew she wanted to become a writer from a very early age, often spending her time writing songs and stories as she grew.

Gigantic and masculine, with long hair and piercing eyes, Ambrose Young was a marvel to look at.

Five youthful men from a tiny town go off to war, and only one comes back.

This is a moving story of loss, both collective and individual loss: loss of beauty, loss of life and loss of identity.
