The Old Lie by Claire G. Coleman Cover

Published in Australia by Hachette Australia.

Shane Daniels and Romany Zetz have been drawn into a war that is not their own. Lives will be destroyed, families will be torn apart. Trust will be broken.

When the war is over, some will return to a changed world. Will they discover that glory is a lie?

Claire G. Coleman's new novel takes us to a familiar world to again ask us what we have learned from the past. The Old Lie might not be quite what you expect.

Available in paperback, ebook and audiobook.

Extract in Meanjin.
