Anita Shreve explores the effect of WWI post- traumatic stress on the body and the soul. A woman wakes up in a hospital tent in France in 1916 with cuts and bruises and no identity. She calls herself Stella Bain even though that might not be her real name. Intuitively, she believes that someone can help her unravel the past. Alone in London, she is found ill by Lily Bridge and her husband, Dr. August Bridge who nurse Stella back to health. During her convalescence, Dr. Bridge, helps her to piece together her past through nurturing her artistic spirit. This would make an excellent book club title.
