The Care and Management of Lies by Jacqueline Winspear

When in 1914 Kezia Marchant marries the brother of her childhood friend, Thea Brissenden, Thea wonders how well her educated friend will do as a farm housewife and gives her the ironic gift of a book on household management.  But when Tom enlists to fight in World War I and Kezia is left to manage the farm, she helps them both endure hardship by sending him imaginary descriptions of home life and meals she is preparing.  A moving story of love and friendship in the face of separation and the brutality of war.
