About this product
- Description'An intensely moving and atmospheric vel - subtle, powerful and beautifully written. It's a devastating journey at times, but a compelling one' Antonia Hodgson, author of The Devil in the Marshalsea A deeply compelling and poignant story that, like the vels of Pat Barker or Sebastian Faulks' Birdsong, dramatises the tragic lessons of war, the significance of belonging and of memory - without which we become lost, even to ourselves. Spring, 1945: A man wakes in a field in a country he does t kw. Injured and confused, he pulls himself to his feet and starts to walk, and so sets out on an extraordinary journey in search of his home, his past and himself. His name is Owen. A war he has only a vague memory of joining is in its dying days, and as he tries to get back to England he becomes caught up in the flood of refugees pouring through Europe. Among them is a teenage boy, Janek, and together they form an unlikely alliance as they cross battle-worn Germany. When they meet a troubled young woman, tempers flare and scars are revealed as Owen gathers up the shattered pieces of his life. No one is as he remembers, t even himself - how can he truly return home when he hardly recalls what home is?
