In crisply enunciated tones, Dan Stevens narrates this love story of two couples from different classes as they navigate life during WWI. Working-class Riley Purefoy, educated above his station, falls in love with the posh, artistic Nadine Waveney. The other couple appears when Purefoy meets Peter Locke in France when both enlist, Locke having left his wife, Julia, with his cousin, Rose. Stevens delivers the details of war and life at home with a relentlessness that echoes the bombing, gunfire, and death of war. The action moves from Ypres and Paris to London and the surrounding countryside without pause or respite. Listeners will be drawn into a story of hope, love, and life after the couple’s world is torn apart by war. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2014]
