Summary

Summary

When an American woman, Stella Bain, is found suffering from severe shell shock in an exclusive garden in London, residents August Bridge and his wife selflessly agree to take her in.

A gesture of goodwill turns into something more as Bridge, a surgeon, quickly develops a clinical interest in his houseguest. Stella had been working as a nurse's aide in France, but she can't remember anything prior to four months earlier when she was found wounded on a French battlefield.

In a narrative that takes us from London to New England and back again, Shreve has created an engrossing and wrenching tale about love and the meaning of memory, set against the haunting backdrop of a war that destroyed an entire generation.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Hope Davis brings an almost painful clarity to Stella’s conviction that she must have done something terrible before she got the shrapnel wounds that hospitalized her. Davis makes each new memory revelation significant. The shock in her voice is palpable…An engrossing listen.” AudioFile
