“With elements reminiscent of Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms, in the midst of World War I, a relationship develops between an English lieutenant and a young Russian nurse—a surprising tenderness against the backdrop of war...with likable characters, spending more time in the Old World is an appealing prospect.” - Kirkus Reviews

Lieutenant Robert Fitzgerald has managed to retain his sanity, his humanity, and his honor during the hell of WWI's trench warfare. Charlotte Braninov fled the shifting storm of the impending Russian Revolution for the less-threatening world of field camp medicine, serving as a nurse in the most hopeless of fronts. Their friendship creates a sanctuary both could cling to in the most desperate of times. Historical fiction about life, loss, and love, By the Hands of Men explores the power that lies within each of us to harm - or to heal - all those we touch.

"A truly remarkable historical novel- so finely rendered in period detail - that the reader becomes one with the plot and characters." - RICK FRIEDMAN, FOUNDER, THE JAMES MASON COMMUNITY BOOK CLUB (6500+ members)
