When Evie's father returned home from World War II, the family fell back into its normal life pretty quickly. But Joe Spooner brought more back with him than just good war stories. When movie-star handsome Peter Coleridge, a young ex-GI who served in Joe's company in postwar Austria, shows up, Evie is suddenly caught in a complicated web of lies that she only slowly recognizes. She finds herself falling for Peter, ignoring the family secrets that surround him-until he mysteriously drowns. Now Evie must find out what happened-and how far she'll go to protect her family. With What I Saw and How I Lied , Judy Blundell gives us a girl's-eye view of a twisted family history, sure to be enjoyed by fans of Jennifer Donnelly's A Northern Light .
