I ordered this book on the strength of another I had read by the same author. Katherine, a young war widow, offers her estate to be used as a hospital for facilly disfigured soldiers. The novel focuses on the devastating effects of World War I on several key figures: Katherine, three of the doctors, a woman artist who designs prostheses for the patients, and Julian, a patient who strangely resembles Katherine's husband. While well written, the novel is a bit dry and predictable--except for a scene near the end that was both unbelievable and infuriating.
