 About the Book 

The bond forged between Daniel Hinton and Harry Treffgarne on their first day at board-school during the Great War would shape the course of at least one of their lives--and mirror the moral conflicts of their centuryAt eighty-six, Daniel looks backMoreThe bond forged between Daniel Hinton and Harry Treffgarne on their first day at board-school during the Great War would shape the course of at least one of their lives--and mirror the moral conflicts of their centuryAt eighty-six, Daniel looks back on their passionate, sometimes painful friendship and at a third, crucial figure in their shared landscape--conscientious objector John Bell, whom Harry helped escape to America. Decades after that encounter, a stray bomb from the centurys second great war kills Harry in a peaceful Yorkshire field. His extraordinary will sends Daniel to Pennsylvania in search of John, now a devout member of the Amish community--and the unwelcome news Daniel hears is that this unworldly pacifist has inherited most of Harrys considerable fortune.
