Synopsis: If the first casualty of war is truth, then its last casualty is hope. Set against the momentous events of the early 20th Century, A Casualty of War is both a romance and a testament to the resilience of the human spirit. Based on a true story, it begins with the chance encounter of a Canadian soldier and a Canadian army nurse after the second battle of Ypres in 1915 and culminates in the historic Winnipeg General Strike four years later. The love story of John Hardie and Maggie O'Connor is tested by war, injury, insurrection and death--and it endures. Interwoven with the present-day narrative of Maggie's grandneice, a nurse working in a small clinic in Zambia, Africa, A Casualty of War is a message of hope for today as well as a memoir of yesterday. 137 pp.
