Overview


A veteran’s comfortable life is upended when long-buried memories of his time in the trenches of World War I come rushing back
 

Charles Rainier’s family feared him lost along with so many of Britain’s youth during the First World War. But two years after he was reported MIA, he appears in a Liverpool hospital with no memory of his missing years. Even after marriage and a life of relative success, he can’t recall his time on the battlefield—until the first bombs of the Second World War begin to fall. Suddenly, his memories flood back. Recollections of a violent battlefield, a German prison, and a passionate affair all threaten to fracture the peaceful life he has worked so hard to create.
 
Random Harvest is a moving account of the trauma of war and the courage required to find redemption in the face of the most overwhelming circumstances.

    Refers specifically to ebook edition

    This is a great book, so it was a major disappointment that the ebook edition was so poorly crafted. Font is Courier - font style does not change even when other fonts selected. Additionally, hard paragraph returns and page breaks inserted randomly in text, plus publisher has decided to add emphasis via ALL CAPS and _underlines_. It is a real disservice to an excellent book!

    Unreadable formatting

    I love James Hilton and this looks like a great novel, but the formatting of this e-edition makes it impossible to read. It's laid out on the page like blank verse, with line breaks after every dozen or so words. I was looking forward to reading it and am disappointed!

    Endangered Classic

    This is my favorite James Hilton novel. I am dismayed that it is virtually unknown in this era. When I become frustrated with unsatisfying recent releases, I head for the library to re-read this amazing classic story.
