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.

    " I have read this book a couple of times. First, it is written during three important stages of the character's life and it deciphers each in a very romantic, yet realistic manner. Dalaney explores old age, becoming somewhat rebelious against God, the flow of nature and even sex. Second, he also reveals his life when young and invinsible and his personal thoughts about being an active participant in the war. Third, he explores the unnatural way he felt about Julia and how he lost her in several metaphorical ways. "

    " This was a hard book to get into. I was not really interested until half way through the book and I predicted the ending and I never can predict the ending. It was just ok. "

    " I read this WWI story when I first moved to Europe in 2002. It really brought home the struggle and misery of that war. The story is haunting and I remember bits of it often. "
