Publisher's Summary

Clio is staying with her aunt, Hester, at Bridge House on the edge of Exmoor. A beautiful house, it is the scene of many happy childhood memories. But Clio has no idea that it was the setting for a terrible incident after the Second World War.

    Story
    "Complex, compassionate look at a WW2 POW survivor"
    Where does Memories of the Storm rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I am a Marcia Willett fan. I trust her to show me lives I might otherwise shrink from, and to encourage me to deepen my compassion. Her multi-chronological, multi-generational stories are carefully and illuminatingly told. This one ranks in my top three, along with The Children's Hour and The Birdcage.


    What other book might you compare Memories of the Storm to and why?

    Along with The Railway Man, this book could be used to open up discussion about PTSD and family life in the Post WW2.


    What does June Barrie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    June Barrie's nuanced narration tunes our ear to the rhythms and subtleties of the dialogue of other times. These may otherwise have lain flat on the page or seemed cliched.
