Can a family's mannered traditions and cool emotions erase the horrors of war from a young couple's past?

Now back in print from New York Times bestselling author Philippa Gregory, Fallen Skies takes readers to post-World War I England in a suspenseful story about the marriage of a wealthy war hero and an aspiring singer he barely knows.

Lily Valance is determined to forget the horrors of the war by throwing herself into the decadent pleasures of the 1920s and pursuing her career as a music hall singer. When she meets Captain Stephen Winters, a decorated veteran, she's immediately drawn to his wealth and status. And Stephen, burdened by his guilt over surviving the Flanders battlefields where so many soldiers perished, sees the possibility of forgetting his anguish in Lily, but his family does not approve.

Lily marries Stephen, only to discover that his family's façade of respectability conceals a terrifying combination of repression, jealousy and violence. When Stephen's terrors merge dangerously close with reality, the truth of what took place in the mud and darkness brings him and all who love him to a terrible reckoning.

From the Publisher:

From the bestselling author of Wideacre, this passionate novel explores the aftermath of World War I through the lives of one British officer and the woman who becomes his wife.

From the Back Cover:

Singer Lily Valance wants to forget the war. She vows to live for the present and enjoy the music and glitter of the frantic 1920s. Captain Stephen Winters joins in on the post-war frenzy, and falls in love with the vivacious performer. But, privately, the aristocratic hero is tortured by the war's painful memories.
