Book description: Charles Rainier’s family feared him lost along with so many of Britain’s youth during the First World War. But two years after he was reported MIA, he appears in a Liverpool hospital with no memory of his missing years. Even after marriage and a life of relative success, he can’t recall his time on the battlefield—until the first bombs of the Second World War begin to fall. Suddenly, his memories flood back. Recollections of a violent battlefield, a German prison, and a passionate affair all threaten to fracture the peaceful life he has worked so hard to create.
