So much life left over : a novel by Louis De Bernières( Book )

14 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the acclaimed author of Corelli's Mandolin: a powerfully evocative and emotional novel, set in the years between the two World Wars, about a closely-knit group of British men and women struggling to cope with the world--and the selves--left to them in the wake of World War I. They were inseparable childhood friends. Some were lost to the war. The others' lives were unimaginably upended, and now, postwar, they've scattered: to Ceylon and India, France and Germany (and, inevitably, back to Britain)--each of them trying to answer the question that fuels this sweeping novel: "If you have been embroiled in a war... what were you supposed to do with so much life unexpectedly left over?" As the narrative unfolds in brief, dramatic chapters we follow the old friends as their paths re-cross or their ties fray, as they test loyalties and love, face survivor's grief and guilt, adjust in profound and quotidian ways to this newest modern world. And at their center: Daniel (an RAF flying ace) and Rosie (a war-time nurse), their marriage slowly revealed to be built on lies, Daniel finding solace--and, sometimes, family--with other women, Rosie drawing her religion around herself like a carapace. Here too are Rosie's sisters--a "bohemian," a minister's wife, and a spinster; Daniel's despairing brother; Rosie's "increasingly peculiar" mother and her genial, secretive father. And as peace once more gives way to war, we see it begin to reshape, yet again, the lives of these beautifully drawn women and men"--

The dust that falls from dreams : a novel by Louis De Bernières( Recording )

14 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the brief golden years of the Edwardian era, Rosie McCosh and her three sisters are growing up in an idyllic household in the countryside south of London. With their neighbors, the two Pitt brothers and the three Pendennis boys, they are "The Pals." But these days of childhood camaraderie and adventure are brought to an abrupt end by the outbreak of World War I, in which some will lose their lives, some their loved ones, some their faith, and all of them their innocence. We follow them through the years of the war--in the trenches, in air battles, in the hospitals where the women serve with as much passion and nearly as much hardship as the men at the front--and its aftermath as the modern world slowly emerges out of the ashes of the old. We come to know intimately this vibrant and eclectic cast of characters, and to see how the connections of their childhood reach deep into their adult lives, the fate of each reverberating in the lives of the others. And at the center is Rosie--in love with one of The Pals and beloved by another--who, in the end, will emerge from tragedy into a profound understanding of what it means to love, not just deeply, but well
