The Return of the Soldier

The Return of the SoldierThe Return of the Soldier by Rebecca West
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A soldier returns home with amnesia thinking it is fifteen years earlier, before he met his wife and was in love with another woman. This story ultimately raises the questions of which is more important, the truth or happiness and how these relate to our obligations. A short novel, well written, engaging, and provocative.
