Summary

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.

Great story

Loved it. But what a shame about most of the male voices. Dreadful. I almost gave up listening.

Penelope Rawlings is an excellent narrator

A good narrator means a good listen, with no mis-pronouncations! An interesting story, telling what happens when you lose your memory, the fear is felt frequently by Stella till she finally finds herself again.
