The Underpainter by Jane Urquhart


My second novel by Canadian Jane Urquhart, and I'm sensing a theme in her work.  She likes telling the historical details of our nation.  This novel has a side-story that tracks into a seaside hospital in WWI France, but what is unique is the point of view from a nurse who suffered terrible shell-shock.  There were times in this novel where I lost interest, and it's not nearly as good as Away, but I still found this novel to be a good one.
