Embers of War is an epic tale of the rivalry between two sisters
and the devastating effects of the Great War on an isolated French
town. July 1914. In an isolated French village the young people
dance at the wedding of Agathe and Philippe. Helene, the bride's
romantic younger sister, flirts with Roland; the priest lusts after

years Lesley Lever lived in a remote farm high in the mountains of
the Massif Central. In Embers of War she captures the complex
relationships of village life and the harsh beauty of the
