Set against the backdrop of WWI, Stella Bain, an American woman who is found suffering from severe shell shock in London, is taken in by surgeon August Bridge and his wife. Stella had been working as a nurse’s aide near the front, but can’t remember anything prior to four months earlier when she was found wounded on a French battlefield. This, Shreve’s 17th novel, is a tragic yet hopeful story of love, memory, loss, and rebuilding.
Participants are asked to bring a sandwich and a friend as they “chat and chew”. Dessert and beverages will be provided. Registration is requested.
