Decades ago, as Nazi planes dominated the sky, Lily Verner made a terrible choice. She's tried to forget, but now an unexpected event pulls her back to the 1940s British countryside. She finds herself remembering the brilliant colors of the silk she helped to weave at her family's mill, the relentless pressure of the worsening war, and the kind of heartbreaking loss that stops time.
In this evocative novel of love and consequences, Lily finally confronts the disastrous decision that has haunted her all these years. The Last Telegram uncovers the surprising truth about how the stories we weave about our lives are threaded with truth, guilt, and forgiveness.

"This stunning debut glows with the fervor and intensity of what life must have been like for civilians in World War II England." (Library Journal)
Perhaps, if one read it. The voice was not tenable.
The breathless, whisper-like quality of the reader was horrible. I tried to listen to the book, but found myself unable to tolerate. I have given up.
I am going to try to get a refund.
A WWII story set against the backdrop of the silk industry, this was a story I really enjoyed listening to. (I would have come up with a better title, however.) My only complaint is that the narrator has a rather odd cadence to her voice; at first I didn't think I could listen to it, but the story was so good that I just learned to adjust.
