About the Edition

It is the twilight of innocence: America 1914. As Europe goes to war, Helen, a Boston bluestocking, begins her studies at Harvard-Radcliffe. Riley, a carefree British playboy more interested in chasing women than studying, sets his sights on her. He is surprised to find that his adversary in love is not Helen"s protective brother, but Riley"s own cousin, Wils Brandl, a brooding poet and German noble. As distant conflict begins to penetrate the quiet walls of Harvard, Wils must return to Europe and face a war for which he is not prepared. Set in Boston and Flanders Fields, Harvard 1914 explores love, war, and a new social imagination.
