    'The Return of the Soldier' by Rebecca West

    Karen Ardiff reads Rebecca West's novel about a soldier in World War 1 who is sent home from the front with a serious case of shell-shock. Chris remembers nothing about the last fifteen years of his life.  He remembers his cousin Jenny from childhood. He doesn't remember his wife Kitty at all and he believes he is in love with Margaret, his first love of fifteen years before.  Eventually, all three are faced with the choice of leaving him as he is or of 'curing' him. 'The Return of the Soldier' is published by Virago Modern Classics.
