Read full description of the books:
From bestselling author Anita Shreve: An epic story, set against the backdrop of World War I, of a woman searching for the secret of her identity.
When a young American woman, Stella Bain, is found suffering from severe shell shock in the exclusive garden of London's Bryanston Square, residents August Bridge and his wife selflessly agree to take her in.
A gesture of goodwill turns into something more as Bridge, a cranial 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 Gainesville, Florida, 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.
