Description

Itani’s beloved, award-winning novel, set on the eve of the Great War and spanning two continents, tells the story of Grania, a young deaf woman who falls in love with Jim, a hearing man. As the war explodes across Europe, Jim becomes a stretcher-bearer, and through the years of separation, he and Grania attempt to sustain their love in a world as beautiful as it is brutal.
