Journal Entry 1 by dabercro from Clinton, Utah USA on Wednesday, January 13, 2016
From the book jacket..."It is 1916, and a woman awakens, wounded, in a field hospital in northern France. She wears the uniform of a British nurse's aide but has an American accent. With no memory of her past or what brought her to this distant war, she knows only that she can drive an ambulance, and that her name is Stella Bain.
As she puts her skills to use, both transporting the wounded from the battlefield and ministering to them in hospital tents, the holes in Stella's psyche gnaw at the edge of her consciousness. At last, desperate to find answers, she sets off for London to reconstruct her life."

My thoughts...another great novel by Anita Shreve. We follow Stella in her journey to recover her memory. She was suffering from "post traumatic stress disorder". A diagnosis yet to be understood and identified at that time in history. I enjoyed this book.
