Rated 5 out of 5 by from History that should not be forgotten This is the type of story that's not told often enough; about the aftermath of war and what happens to the survivors. It's also a reminder that wars aren't fought by generals; they're fought by ordinary people and the suffering they endure can go on for a lifetime. Survivors of World War I came home to a society that was not informed about or sympathetic to the effects of traumatic shock, horrible memories, and loss of faith. It's also the story of individual bravery; of people like the author's great aunt who did what was necessary and faced great hardship and risks, including capture by the enemy. If I have a complaint about the book, it's that I wanted to read more; to know more about these people and their lives. The contribution they made to the world we live in today deserves to be recognized. Even their suffering made a difference, in that today the impacts of war on the mind and spirit are much better understood and the need for treatment acknowledged.
