[a Novel]Audiobook CD - 2013
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.

Etna experiences memory loss after traumatic events as an ambulance driver in WWII. She now thinks she might be Stella Bain, and she takes a leave of absence to go to England where she thinks someone can help her at the admiralty. Great story about perseverance and what a woman will do to escape an abusive husband and gain custody of her children. Also interesting history of shellshock and medical diagnosis.
