Praise

“Be prepared to surrender—to Liardet’s gorgeous prose, her haunting storyline, and the question that will lodge in your heart long after you’ve finished: What would I have done? For anyone who has ever loved a child, this stirring debut will work its way indelibly into the folds of your memory, and of your heart.”—Georgia Hunter, New York Times bestselling author of We Were the Lucky Ones

“Vividly portrayed. . . . Liardet reminds us that mother-daughter love can arise from thrown-together hearts during the cruelest rubble of war. Through every scene, we see the tattered socks, the doll faces, the honey-smells of baby skin, but mostly we feel the strength and endurance of heart-crushing love. The war and weather-etched faces and life-long relationships of the villagers show us that real family has little to do with worn down definitions. This is a powerful story that proves how love itself requires courage.”—Delia Owens, New York Times bestselling author of Where the Crawdads Sing

“Intense passion is concealed behind a facade of British modesty in this … blazing story of hearts wounded and restored.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred)

“Moving. . . Readers will be captivated by Ellen’s story, which is bolstered by a swift plot and characters who realistically and memorably grow.” Publishers Weekly

“This is storytelling at its best. Wise, generous and captivating.” – Sarah Winman, author of Tin Man

We Must Be Brave is a wonderful novel. A beautifully written story of love and loss, with thoughtfully crafted characters and so much to think about long after you’ve finished reading it. It is one of those novels you can talk about for hours – the perfect book club read.” —AJ Pearce, author of Dear Mrs. Bird

“Deeply moving. . . A stunningly accurate portrayal of the all-encompassing depth of a mother’s love (whether she’s the biological mother or not). Read it and weep.” AARP Magazine

“A
 beautifully written story that explores love, loss, resilience, and the bonds of motherhood over the course of the 20th century. A sweeping, heartfelt novel about what it means to truly love a child.” – Jillian Cantor, author of The Lost Letter and In Another Time
