"...extraordinary...uniquely fascinating and moving..." BOOKLIST May, the daughter of Charles Cannan, Dean of Trinity College, Oxford, met Bevil, the son of Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch, when he came up to Trinity in 1910. When war broke out in 1914, Bevil was sent to France to serve as an Officer in the Royal Artillery. Within days of the Armistice, Bevil asked May to marry him - but tragedy struck. Here is the couple's story told through May's published poetry, with passages from her autobiography and letters from Bevil and his father, interspersed with official war diary extracts. It is a moving account of the melancholy of a war which stole the lives and loves of a generation.
