The Return Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Jack’s war is over, but his greatest battle is about to begin.
From the author of The Lost Ones, shortlisted for the Goldsboro Books Glass Bell Award and Historical Writers’ Association Debut Crown Award....
Jack Ellison’s war is over, but the battle for his family has just begun.
When Jack left for the war, he made a parting pledge to his pregnant bride, Gwen, that he would never return. It was, after all, best for everyone that he didn’t.
Now, as celebrations erupt for Victory in Europe, Gwen is terrified that Jack will renege on his promise, threatening the life she has built for herself and their son on the family farm.
But war has changed Jack, and he is coming home, determined to claim a place in Gwen’s life—and her heart.
As events of the past come back to haunt them, Jack and Gwen find themselves facing their greatest battle—and it is a fight neither of them can afford to lose.
In this sweeping historical story with huge heart, Anita Frank weaves a glorious tale of love and loss, secrets and promises.

Set between 1939 and 1945, the premise of the book - a pledge made by husband Jack not to return to his pregnant bride should he make it to the end of the war - is full of intrigue. The author beautifully reveals what led to this unusual pledge, flipping back and forth through the timelines.
The writing is stunning. There are entire scenes that took my breath away for their restraint and evocativeness. In particular, the points in the novel where the author reveals a tentative and fragile new attraction between two characters is so emotionally wrought my own heart could barely take it.
This is a wonderful novel, skillfully covering the themes of love, redemption and loss.
I can't wait to read more from Anita Frank!
The Return is beautifully written. The story set between 1939 and 1945 is so evocative of that time and I was quickly caught up in the love story. Gwen and Jack felt very real to me. The lovely descriptions of the land, nature and the daily work of the farm really added to the book’s authenticity. On finishing the book I felt a hankering to a more simple yet enriched way of life.
