Spring 1915: On an estate near London, a young wife mourns her husband, fallen on a distant battlefield...The stillness in which she grieves is soon shattered, for her home transforms into a bustling military hospital.Unsettled by the suffering soldiers, the widow finds solace in the company of a wounded officer whose mutilated face is concealed by bandages.Then, fate presents her with a strange opportunity.With the help of a visionary surgeon and a woman artist, she can 'remake' her new lover in the image of her lost husband....Very exciting and thrilling experience. This book is really worthy and a rare type of content.

Hot tip: Evocative like Ondaatje's "The English Patient, " inspired by the collaboration between surgeons and artists in treating the wounded during World War I.
