The Night Watch

By Sarah WatersWaters narrates the lives of a group of women - and some men - as they are affected by the terrors of the London Blitz and World War II's aftermath, playing the narrative backward from 1947. Wartime can be a time of kindness amidst stunning atrocity and we can see the courage and goodness that is possible in this book, which was short-listed for Britain' s Man Booker Prize.
