Year 8, Book 100

100. Stella Bain by Anita Shreve

In the midst of World War I, Stella Bain is found wandering shell shocked around a square in London. She is taken in by a physician and his wife who work to restore her to health and to help her to remember who she is and how she came to be serving as a nurse with the French army. The parts of the story about the war and Stella’s time serving were pretty interesting, but then the book turned into a stupid romance novel at the end which pretty much ruined it for me.  I give it a 4 out of 10.
