Beschreibung

This devastating tale of love and war is "in Graham Greene territory . . . A solid novel on morality in our not-quite-postcolonial world" (The Globe and Mail, Toronto).

A doctor and a nurse, Paris and Helen, are doing humanitarian work in a nation on the brink of civil war. They have also fallen in love with each other-and Helen is pregnant with their child.

Then, a confrontation breaks out and they are swept up by rebel forces and separated. One is imprisoned while the other escapes. In The Colonial Hotel-which recasts a classic story of ancient Greece into a modern setting-we learn of their fates, in a brutally powerful story of family, forgiveness, and identity.

"An exploration of love and grief, the power of storytelling, the pains of parenthood and uncomfortable truths . . . Bennett has cleverly and sensitively described the many types of love tested by war . . . Rewarding and intensely moving . . . Devastatingly beautiful." -National Post

Jonathan Bennett is the author of six books, including the critically acclaimed novels Entitlement and After Battersea Park, and is a winner of the K.M. Hunter Artists' Award in Literature.
