I enjoyed this very much, Susan. The main interest isn't Chris, the soldier who has lost his memory, but the tensions in the group of three women who care for him. There's his luxury-loving wife, who's rather brittle and girly, his cousin Jenny (whom one suspects is in love with Chris) and unfashionable, plain, deep Margaret, a former love to whom Chris wants to return, trauma having erased his marriage completely from his mind.
It's short and very readable but not shallow; it has truth about it. Rebecca West is writing from observations.
