Dick Heldar is a war correspondent and an artist, well known for the drawings he sends home to the London papers from wars in exotic places like Sudan. When he returns to London, he attempts to make a career for himself as a serious artist and reencounters his childhood sweetheart, Maisie. Then he learns that a minor problem with his eyes is actually the onset of an incurable blindness, the result of a head injury during the war. As his vision fails, the light of everything around him—his life, hopes, and dreams—fails with it. Terrible choices must be made between the love of a woman and the love of the men who stood by him at the front.

    " A bit sentimental, but a good read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Gretchen | 1/7/2014

    " No. It wouldn't have happened like that. I'm convinced. And usually I'm all for a nice and tidy tragedy. But this was silly and strangely posh (despite the whole starving blind artist "thing"). Two stars for the first chapter. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Laura | 1/3/2014

    " not usually a brit lit fan, but this surprised me. maybe all its modern-ess is enough of a selling point. anyway, definately readable. "
