Reprint. Originally published: London: Hutchinson, 2015.

A haunting tale of war, love and loss from the author of Birdsong and A Week in DecemberThe Sunday Times bestsellerOn a small island off the south coast of France, Robert Hendricks - an English doctor who has seen the best and the worst the twentieth century had to offer - is forced to confront the events that made up his life.

His host is Alexander Pereira, a man who seems to know more about his guest than Hendricks himself does.

The search for the past takes us through the war in Italy in 1944, a passionate love that seems to hold out hope, the great days of idealistic work in the 1960s and finally - unforgettably - back into the trenches of the Western Front. This moving novel casts a long, baleful light over the century we have left behind but may never fully understand.

Daring, ambitious and in the end profoundly moving, this is Faulks's most remarkable book yet.
