The Lives of Stella Bain

Anita Shreve

When an American woman, Stella Bain, is found suffering from severe shell shock in a London garden, surgeon August Bridge and his wife selflessly agree to take her in. However, 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. ‘Poised and absolutely steady-handed, this is a gripping piece of deconstruction’ SUNDAY TIMES on Testimony
