Clementine and Claudia by Piper Milton is the story of two sisters, who during World War I, take different paths in life and the aftermath that occurs when their paths collide again. The story opens in January 1917, Clementine is heading home from a field hospital in France to attend her sister’s wedding in England. On the train ride, she meets and falls in love with a handsome military officer which fate doesn’t allow her to discover his name. The day of her sister’s wedding she discovers the handsome officer is her sister’s fiancé, Alexander! Torn between her own desires and her family’s honor, she decides to try and forget her feeling. Fate turns again and Clementine and Alexander are put together on a chance encounter. Can Clementine really forget her love for Alexander and see him as her brother-in-law? Can she find her own happiness?
Clementine and Claudia, a drama about two very different sisters: Clementine sacrifices her freedom and safety to serve as a nurse on the front lines, while her sister, Claudia is very selfish and is only concerned with how the war is effecting her social life. The story’s drama kept me on the edge of my seat. With many twists and turns, the story had an ending I was not expecting. With the backdrop of the World War I, the intense moments heightens the drama of the love triangle between Clementine, Alexander and Claudia. I highly recommend Clementine and Claudia.
