Stella Bain /

It is 1916 and a woman awakens in a field hospital in France. She wears a British nurse's aide's uniform but has an American accent. With no memory of her past, she knows only that she can drive an ambulance, and that her name is Stella Bain. While she tends the wounded, the gaps in Stella's psyche plague her. Desperate to find answers, she sets off for London, where she is taken in by Dr. August Bridge, a surgeon who becomes fascinated with her bizarre symptoms. Delving into her fractured mind, Bridge unlocks a disturbing history -- of deception, thwarted love, and betrayal. As her memories come racing back, Stella must embark on a new journey to confront her haunted past.

  • ""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."--"
