The Lost Generation

By Erica Marie Hogan


Three couples. Three countries. One War...

On August 5th 1914, the world changed forever. For John and Beth Young, it meant the happiness they finally achieved was snatched out from under them. For Emma Cote, it meant that her husband Jared would do his duty, despite her feelings. For Christy Simmons it meant an uncertain future with the boy she loved. The lives of six people, spread across the British Empire to America were changed forever.

When John, Jared and Will find themselves thrust together in France and Emma and Christy decide to seek out their missing husbands, the lives of these three families intertwine in ways that none of them could possibly have imagined. Working together in a field hospital, Emma and Christy learn to rely on and protect each other. Lost together in a strange forest and cut off from their unit, the three soldiers run and hide.

But the further they go, the more they realize that the chances of all of them making it out unscathed are nonexistent and Emma and Christy find that blood is not easy to wash off, but no friendship is stronger than that made during times of war, sacrifice and healing.

Book Takeaway:

The most important takeaway from this book is that in faith, we can overcome. That you can rise above adversity and pain, no matter how harshly your faith is tested. War is a horrible thing to experience, but living after can be just as hard. We are given the strength to move forward in faith and trust that we're never alone. God is always with us.

Why the author wrote this book:

I wrote this book because I wanted to create a story about strength, faith, sacrifice, and healing. I hope that this book offers all of that to readers. The most important reason I wrote this, was to keep the memory of the men, women, and children who were lost during World War One alive. My father's passion for this piece of history inspired me to write a story that not only showed what the soldiers went through, but gave a glimpse into the lives of the wives and mothers left behind. My desire is to write inspirational stories about overcoming tragedy and I hope this is the first of many.
