The Ghost Road" is a startlingly good novel ...With the other two volumes of the trilogy, it forms one of the richest and most rewarding works of fiction of recent times. Intricately plotted, beautifully written, skilfully assembled, tender, horrifying and funny, it lives on in the imagination, like the war it so imaginatively and so intelligently explores' - "Times Literary Supplement".
1918, and Billy Prior is in France once again. A real test case for the ‘shell-shock’ therapies practised at Craiglockhart War Hospital where, with Wilfred Owen, he was a patient. Prior experiences a late-summer idyll, some days of perfect beauty, before the final battles in a war that has destroyed most of his generation. In London, Prior’s psychologist, William Rivers, tends to his new patients, more young men whose lives and minds have been shattered. And remembers the primitive society on Eddystone Island where he studied as an anthropologist before the war.

this is part of her 2nd world war trilogy I loved the Regeneration trilogy and this is as good she is really good at creating a sense of the time she is writing in the characterisation is also very clear and believable. Her recent one on the Trojan War is also worth looking at particularly in the light of current day refugees
