Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite The Officer’s Affair is a wartime novel by author Samantha Grosser. Set in England during the events of the Second World War, this historical tale centers on a wounded soldier by the name of Danny Lock. After a long stint fighting the war in Italy, Danny suffers life-altering injuries which mean he never feels like a complete man again. His wife Rachel is young and hopeful, trying desperately to help him without emasculating him and to adjust to the new version of her husband who’s come from the war. As if all this drama wasn’t enough for the struggling couple to tackle, a handsome associate by the name of Captain Andrews also returns from the war and comes to call on Danny. Rachel and the captain have plenty of tension from the get-go, but it’s Danny’s odd behavior towards Captain Andrews which really sets them all on a collision course with the past. I adore Second World War fiction, especially when it focuses on unusual aspects of the war and the ordinary lives of the people at home. Samantha Grosser weaves an authentically British tale with Danny Lock, whose pain is palpable and heartbreaking on every page. The unveiling plot between Danny and the captain was unexpectedly rich and filled with intrigue, and the romantic elements of the tale were full of true-to-life conflict, passion and guilt. I found Rachel to be a heroine who grew on me as the tale progressed, and there was certainly more to this simple young woman than first met the eye. Overall, a highly recommended wartime drama.
