Rebecca West was apparently the first woman to write of the Great War. And this taut short novel from 1918 tells of Chris, a young English soldier with memory loss, robbing him of the last 15 years. The beauty of the book is how perfectly West envelops the reader in the dilemma. I’ll only say that the story is about a soldier returned from the war with amnesia. He no longer remembers his wife.

Return of a Soldier is British writer Rebecca West’s first novelette. It was published in 1918, during World War I and is about the war, or more precisely, the effects the war had on civilians on the Homefront and soldiers on the battlefield. The book may be considered a novella or short story that covers over 90 pages of a series of flashbacks of memories to piece together Chris’s mindset. And with Jenny’s helpful narration of the story, she provides clarity, but even with that in mind, there is a bit of complexity that emerges within each short chapter.
