Fiction • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

The trauma of war can be a challenging topic for authors and narrators, but this audiobook avoids stereotypes to present a dark yet memorable story of two couples' journeys to recovery after the Great War. The result is a complex story delivered with sensitivity and emotion by narrator Dan Stevens. The story of the Purefoys and the Lockes highlights the challenges each couple faces as they deal with the memories, pain, and hostility they harbor as a result of their actions during the war. Although Stevens's portrayal of Peter Locke's battles with alcohol highlights the book, it is his more understated delivery of the other characters' demons that brings out the best of the novel.
