Book Discussion - "Stella Bain" by Anita Shreve

When an American woman, Stella Bain, is found suffering from severe shell shock and wandering an exclusive garden in London, surgeon August Bridge and his wife selflessly agree to take her in. A gesture of goodwill turns into something more as Bridge quickly develops a clinical interest in his houseguest who had worked as a nurse's aide near the front and can't remember anything prior to her wounding on a French battlefield. This is an engrossing and wrenching tale about love and the meaning of memory, set against the backdrop of World War I.
