The Return of the Soldier

By:

West, Rebecca

Genre:

Historical Fiction

A shell-shocked WWI soldier cannot remember his wife and becomes obsessed anew with the woman he loved at age twenty

"Courageous and compassionate, The Return of the Soldier delineates the long-term consequences of war in ways that are as relevant today as they were in 1918 when the book first appeared. Ultimately - and without ever lapsing into easy sentiment - Rebecca West paints a portrait of the redeeming power of love." - Pat Barker
