I Have to Read This!


I came across this new book coming out November 12th this year! I have to read this. I have never been disappointed in an Anita Shreve book yet. Be on the lookout for this one!


An epic story, set against the backdrop of World War I, from bestselling author Anita Shreve.'When an American woman, Stella Bain, is found suffering from severe shell shock in an exclusive garden in London, surgeon August Bridge and his wife selflessly agree to take her in.

A gesture of goodwill turns into something more as Bridge quickly develops a clinical interest in his houseguest. Stella had been working as a nurse's aide near the front, 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 America 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.'

  1. I have read all of Shreves books so this is on the TBR list as well, but I do prefer contemporary settings more.

    1. This is a little different for her, Diane, isn't it? I loved the Weight of Water, actually I've never met a Shreve book yet I didn't like!
