Stella had been working as a nurses aide in France, but she cant 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.
