Jonathan Hull's debut novel is an epic story of love found and lost, of life in all its joy and tragedy. Though the eyes of Patrick Delaney, both bright as a 19-year-old soldier from New Jersey off to fight the Great War and dim as an 81-year-old man, Jonathan Hull shows listeners one man's world of discovery, of love, and ultimately, of regret. Julia was the beautiful wife of Patrick's best friend, Daniel. Patrick knew he was meant to be with her the moment he first saw her. Though married, Patrick falls desperately in love with Julia during the brief but unforgettable time they spend together exploring the still-battle-scarred countryside and grappling to make sense of what took place there. Struggling to reconcile their love with the havoc of war and life's obligations, Julia and Patrick cling to each other until one faltered step, when Patrick loses Julia, perhaps never to find her again. From the vicious savagery of trench warfare to the sometimes comic and often tragic indignities of life in a nursing home, listeners will make an unforgettable journey through Patrick Delaney's memories as he questions whether the joy he shared with Julia can outweigh the losses of a lifetime.
