A runaway best seller in France and winner of the 1991 Prix Interallie, Sebastien Japrisot's novel about World War I was acclaimed as a latter-day War and Peace by The New York Times.

Set during and after the First World War, A Very Long Engagement is the tale of a young woman's search for her fiance who she believes might still be alive despite having officially been reported as killed in the line of duty. Unable to walk since childhood, fearless Mathilde Donnay is undeterred in her quest as she scours the country for information about five wounded French soldiers who were brutally abandoned by their own troops.

A Very Long Engagement is a mystery, a love story, and an extraordinary portrait of life in France before and after the War.

    " I watched the movie adaptation of this book first. I cried at the end of the movie and then searched to find the book. I read it and cried at the end of the book. I've read books and watched the movie adaptations and found that the books were much better than their film counterparts, but I disagree with A Very Long Engagement. Both mediums were worth it. "
