Publisher's Summary

The Return of the Soldier is Rebecca West's 1918 novel of the struggle of a World War I veteran, Chris Baldry, who is shell-shocked with amnesia, to return home and make sense of the life that he had before he went to war, a life that now he can't entirely remember.

This dramatic novel shows with great heart, that the horrors of war are not always left on the battlefield.

Silly voices

Would have preferred she spoke in her normal voice the entire time. Also, the forward gives away too much of the story; I hate that.

Not for Archers fans

Lovely story. However the reader sounded like Kate from BBC R4’s The Archers.... an obnoxious character. This influenced how I felt about the narration and the story, in fact it ruined it
