The classic German novel of World War I. Remarque fought in the war himself and his descriptions of trench warfare in France are vivid. A great read for anyone, especially those interested in history or human nature during wartime.

In need of a wife, Pastor Marcus Wheeler was sure God would send him a good woman--anyone except Nicole Archer. Though she was kind and beautiful, she was far too young and unconventional to be a proper minister's wife. She couldn't possibly be the one for him. But the more time he spent with Nicole, the more he marveled at her strength and spirit. Nicole made juggling school and family responsibilities seem easy, yet Marcus knew he could help ease her burdens--and make her smile. Sometimes God's plan isn't what one expects...
