Adjustment Year by Melina Druga

The war is over, but the healing has just begun.

1919. The promise of better days slips away as the optimism everyone experienced on Armistice Day fades.

Hettie Taylor returns home to Canada married to Alfred, a man she barely knows, and without having had an opportunity in the nursing service to properly mourn her first husband, Geoffrey. As she adjusts to civilian life, Hettie is overcome by emotions she has difficulty controlling and must learn to come to terms with Geoffrey’s death.

Complicating matters, Alfred’s family is unnecessarily cruel to her, and Hettie begins to wonder if she will be miserable for the rest of her days.

She takes comfort confiding in her brother, Freddie, the only person she feels understands her, but he is dealing with his own storm of emotions. And a secret.

Will Hettie adjust to her first post-war year, or are she and Alfred destined for divorce?

Available for preorder now.  Launches April 9.
