Toby's Room

Pat Barker

From the Booker Prize-winning author of Life Class (2008) comes this masterful portrait of Britain during World War I. Painter Elinor Brooke has always been close with her brother, Toby. The news that he's missing and presumed dead shocks and grieves her. As she tries to discover just what happened to her beloved brother, she finds herself reconnecting with two men who were fellow art students as well as soldiers. Can Kit Neville, part of Toby's team of medics, or Paul Tarrant, Elinor's former lover, help her find her brother? A well-crafted epic.
