Anna Hope / Anna Hope
As the body of the Unknown Soldier makes its way home from the fields of Northern France three women are dealing with loss in their own way: Hettie who dances for sixpence a waltz at the Hammersmith Palais; Evelyn who toils at a job in the pensions office; and Ada a housewife who is beset by visions of her dead son. One day a young man comes to her door. He carries with him a wartime mystery that will bind these women together and will both mend and tear their hearts. A portrait of three intertwining lives caught at the faultline between empire and modernity Wake captures the beginnings of a new era and the day the mood of the nation changed for ever.
