Staff Reviews

In the beginning of the novel, Anita Shreve transports the reader to the horror of the French battlefields of WWI. Stella Bain is a volunteer nurse and ambulance driver who has been wounded and suffers memory loss associated with shell shock. She is not even sure if Stella is her real name. In Shreve's capable hands, Stella's story emerges of how she slowly regains her memory with the help of a British doctor who employs the new "talking therapy." Stella finds the strength to confront the demons that she fled from in America. A brilliant depiction of a story often ignored — the effects of shell shock on women.
