This early work by Mary Augusta Ward was originally published in 1917 and we are now republishing it as part of our WWI Centenary Series. 'Missing' tells the story of an Englishwoman working on the home front during the First World War. She finds spiritual freedom in her occupation and this entertaining drama highlights the emerging new role for women in society. This book is part of the World War One Centenary series; creating, collating and reprinting new and old works of poetry, fiction, autobiography and analysis. The series forms a commemorative tribute to mark the passing of one of the world's bloodiest wars, offering new perspectives on this tragic yet fascinating period of human history. Each publication also includes brand new introductory essays and a timeline to help the reader place the work in its historical context.
