Review by anonymous (posted on 25-May-2005)
This is a very compelling story of
love and loss. The main character, a black soldier in Europe, finds
himself having an affair with a English woman, who has lost faith in
her marriage and in her own happiness. The two fall in love with each
other, but the mood quickly sours, as the woman's husband returns from
the field, only to catch them in the act. Despite cries that it was
consentual, the protagonist is thrown in jail for rape. Because he is
black, his trial and sentencing are carried ot in an expedient manner.
The woman tries to fight for his life, but is faced with a society that
is less than forgiving, and a husband who is very manipulative. In the
end, the soldier is hung for the crime of rape, and his love and the
affair die with him.
