Jacqueline Winspear, The Care and Management of Lies (Harper)

Winspear's beloved period mysteries featuring Masie Dobbs depict an England haunted by memories of the Great War, so it's no surprise that she uses the conflict as the backdrop to her first stand-alone novel. The Care and Management of Lies paints a poignant picture of love and friendship strained by the pain of separation and the chaos of battle.
