A new novel by Jacqueline Winspear is “The Care and Management of Lies.” By July 1914 the ties between Kezia and Thea, her friend from childhood, have become strained – by Thea’s embrace of women’s suffrage and by Kezia’s marriage to Thea’s brother Tom, who runs the family farm. When Tom enlists and Thea is drawn reluctantly onto the battlefield, the farm becomes Kezia’s responsibility. Tom and Kezia hide their despair in letters woven to bring comfort, but will well-intended lies and self-deception be of use when they come face to face with the enemy?
