A lyrical and cinematic story of memory, redemption and the importance of belonging
Jason Hewitt’s latest book tells the tale of Owen who in Spring 1945 wakes in a field in a country he does not know injured and suffering memory loss. He sets out on a moving trek in search of his home, his past and himself.
Hewitt’s style makes you feel like you are watching a film. His language and imagery express deep personal emotion in a way rarely seen in writers and his writing is rightly compared with Pat Barker and Sebastian Faulks.
A book that will stay with you as it builds to a powerful finale.
One of the best novels I’ve read this year.
