Flanders, by Patricia Anthony

The novel is set in the trenches of WWI. The main character is Travis Lee Stanhope, a Texan sharpshooter who serves in an English unit and sees ghosts. He writes to his brother at home, and we see the war through his letters, life that's at turns desperate and funny and innocent and brutal and haunting and loved.

One of the reviewers said that he would've read the book the whole way through, if his tears had let him. And that says it all, really. I stayed up to finish this book and now I can't sleep because I can't let go of the story.

It's so achingly beautiful and I didn't want it to end, not like it did.
