The Evening Chorus: A Novel - Helen Humphreys

I usually avoid World War II books like the plague, but this one is very beautiful.  Perhaps because it doesn't deal with the actual war all that much.  James' time in a POW camp in Germany and the experiences of his wife and his sister during and after the war.

 

Lots of nature, particularly birds.

 

Will finish this one this evening.
