Summary
Terrified, a young prisoner in the Second World War closes his eyes and pictures himself going out to bat on a sunlit cricket ground in Hampshire. Across the courtyard in a Victorian workhouse, a father too ashamed to acknowledged his son. A skinny girl steps out of a Chevy with a guitar; her voice sends shivers through the skull. Soldiers and lovers, parents and children, scientists and musicians risk their bodies and hearts in search of connection - some key to understanding the people we become
Summary
Five interconnected stories by the best-selling author of Birdsong trace the experiences of soldiers whose relationships are irrevocably shaped by war, from a World War II prisoner who endures his incarceration by imagining a cricket match to a man in a Victorian poorhouse who shamefully remembers the son he gave away
