In 1918, Rudy’s brother Edgar goes missing in France. Unable to shake his grief, Rudy is determined to unravel exactly what happened to his brother. Suspicion surrounds his death, and Mariette, the woman who claims to be Edgar’s widow, complicates Rudy’s quest for the truth. He falls hopelessly in love with her, but he’s tortured by guilt and unanswered questions. If Edgar is still alive, where is he? If he’s not, how can Rudy and his family make sense of his death?
In a Field of Blue both cast a light on the lasting effects of war and filled me with hope, showing how far a man will go to fulfill his promise to honor and protect those he loves.
