Ghosts by Daylight: A Modern-Day War Correspondent's Memoir of Love, Loss, and Redemption

304 pages4 hours


A British war reporter falls in love and tries to settle down, only to realize she has not escaped the shadow of war unscathed.
Award-winning war correspondent Janine di Giovanni has spent more than twenty years reporting from the frontline of conflicts around the world. From Sarajevo to East Timor, from Sierra Leone to Afghanistan, Iraq, and Somalia, she has risked her life to record events on behalf of the voiceless.
Along the way, Janine met Bruno, a French cameraman whose spirit and audacity were a match for her own. Their love affair spanned nearly a decade—and a dozen armed conflicts—before they settled in Paris to raise a family. Only then did Janine learn that everyday life is fraught with landmines of its own. Bruno struggles with physical and emotional pain, and Janine—more at ease under gunfire than with the responsibilities of marriage and motherhood—fears that she’ll be unable to hold their fragile new family together.
