France, 1916: Estelle Graham faces a nightmare. Expecting to be met by her beloved husband and their newly-adopted daughter, she instead finds him gravely injured and unconscious in a casualty clearing station. Taking solace in his journals and letters, she fights for his care-and his life.

In a farmhouse near the Somme, Captain Jamie Graham is forever changed when he meets young Aveline Perrault. Damaged by the cold, cruel world around them-made even colder by the war-the pair form an unlikely bond. Aveline finds in her capitaine the father she never had, and with her help, Graham faces the pain from his own childhood that even his loving marriage could not heal.

Discover the depth of love and faith in the face of brutality as they learn to live while surviving the Great War.

Recensioner i media

"The War in Our Hearts, for the most part, deals less with plot than with the internal thoughts and feelings of its characters. Insecurities, fears, hatreds, and joys are exposed in a way that rivets the reader's attention, connection, and support. No matter how tough circumstances seem, Jamie, Aveline, Estelle, and George learn to celebrate their bond of love that, without being contrived, enables more than survival. Hope is a very real entity that each seeks and learns to value. One may wonder how such cruel and evil people exist, but Seyler focuses her message more on the birth of compassion, fairness, and strength through turmoil and tragedy. Remarkable, highly recommended historical fiction." Viviane Crystal, Historical Novel Society


"i felt like every piece of the story was strong and essential to bring it to the place it did. a beautiful and evocative read." r. s. hogan, author of Shrouded Loyalties


"set primarily in the trenches of wwi, The War in Our Hearts tells a story of courage and redemption, of innocence destroyed and the healing power of love." Marian L Thorpe, author of the Empire's Legacy series





Övrig information

Eva was born in Jacksonville, Florida. She left that humidity pit at the age of three and spent the next twenty-one years in California, Idaho, Kentucky, and Washington before ending up in Oregon, where she now lives on a homestead in the western foothills with her husband and five children, two of whom are human.

Eva cannot remember a time when she couldn't read, and has spent her life devouring books. In her early childhood years, she read and re-read The Boxcar Children, The Trumpet of the Swan, anything by Johanna Spyri or A A Milne, and any issues of National Geographic with illustrated articles about mummified, skeletonised, and otherwise no-longer-viable people.

As a teenager she was a huge fan of Louisa May Alcott and Jane Eyre.

As an adult she enjoys primarily historical fiction (adult or YA) and nonfiction on a wide range of topics, including, but not limited to, history, disaster, survival, dead people, and the reasons people become dead. Audiobooks are her jam, and the era of World War One is her historical pet.

Eva began writing stories when very young and wrote almost constantly until she was 25, after which she took a years-long break before coming back to pursue her old dream of becoming a published author for real. She loves crafting historical fiction that brings humanity to real times and events that otherwise might seem impersonal and distant, and making doodles to go with them.

When Eva is not writing, she is teaching her human children, eating chocolate, cooking or baking, wasting time on Twitter, and making weird shrieky noises every time she sees her non-human children.
