Fiction • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1993

Five soldiers reportedly killed in action in the last days of WWI were actually victims of a horrific miscarriage of military justice. Mathilde Donnay's fiancé, Manech, was one of those soldiers. Two years after the war, a dying officer suggests a different story, and she embarks on a search for the truth. In spite of confinement to a wheelchair, Mathilde persistently follows all leads to find the truth. Isabel Keating's narration is engrossing, painting a picture of war in all its humanity, in-humanity, and horror. This is not an audiobook you can multitask with; keeping the details straight will require all your attention . . . but it's worth the effort.
