    Description

    A poignant story about friendship, betrayal, obsession and second chances – this novel is an immensely powerful portrayal of human resilience.

    Sierra Leone: civil war has left an entire population with terrible secrets to keep. In the capital's hospital Kai, a gifted young surgeon, is plagued by demons. Elsewhere in the hospital lies Elias Cole, a university professor who recalls the love that drove him to acts that are far from heroic. As past and present intersect, Kai and Elias are drawn unwittingly closer and into the path of one woman at the centre of their stories.

    Love in The Time of War

    Aminatta Forna's Memories of Love surprises as the story is told through the life and love of Elias Cole. This is a story of love, admiration, unbridled passions, amidst the hopes, lust for life, power and the national pride of a post colonial African nation. A story of wishes, of great hopes, set against struggles for power and control, and a civil war that leaves behind losses of  lives, mind, dignity, of a people and a nation, of all that had been normal. 

    This is story of betrayals, survival, absolution and redemption; of love intertwined with tragedy - survival where minds and souls are lost, traumatized, and destroyed whilst trying to grasp at what is true, honorable, and lasting. 

    A story of the best and the worst in a nation facing a struggle for redemption, to right past wrongs, to move forward as a nation and a people becoming.

    Love is the challenge, the motivator, the betrayer, and the betrayed. These are its memories.

    Outstanding narrator

    Captures a diverse set of accents superbly. I bought this book months ago and just couldn't get into it. Then, I couldn't stop listening. It is historical fiction but it is such recent history that it blows your mind away to know what people still have to endure. Brilliant!

    Sierra Leone und was dort vor 30 Jahren geschah

    Der Roman ist außerordentlich spannend und vielschichtig. Mr Holdbrook-Smith brilliert mal wieder im Ausdruck der unterschiedlichen Charaktere. Eine brutale Zeit hat ihre Spuren in den Menschen hinterlassen, die bis in die Gegenwart wirken, andere möchten helfen und geraten mit in die Strudel
