Everyone Brave is Forgiven by Chris Cleave

There isn't a doubt in my mind that Chris Cleave is a brilliant, talented writer, and this book is no exception. Readers who enjoyed Little Bee will devour this novel as well. All readers will find this book to be an enjoyable read, but fans of historical fiction will be particularly excited for this novel. For me, the connection to the main character was a the selling point. I hope you all enjoy reading Everyone Brave Is Forgiven. 

It’s 1939 and Mary, a young socialite, is determined to shock her blueblood political family by volunteering for the war effort. She is assigned as a teacher to children who were evacuated from London and have been rejected by the countryside because they are infirm, mentally disabled, or—like Mary’s favorite student, Zachary—have colored skin.

Tom, an education administrator, is distraught when his best friend, Alastair, enlists. Alastair, an art restorer, has always seemed far removed from the violent life to which he has now condemned himself. But Tom finds distraction in Mary, first as her employer and then as their relationship quickly develops in the emotionally charged times. When Mary meets Alastair, the three are drawn into a tragic love triangle and—while war escalates and bombs begin falling around them—further into a new world unlike any they’ve ever known.

A sweeping epic with the kind of unforgettable characters, cultural insights, and indelible scenes that made Little Bee so incredible, Chris Cleave’s latest novel explores the disenfranchised, the bereaved, the elite, the embattled. Everyone Brave Is Forgiven is a heartbreakingly beautiful story of love, loss, and incredible courage.

Happy Reading!
