Publisher's Summary

A poignant story of love and redemption, The Moon Field explores the loss of innocence through a war that destroys everything except the bonds of human hearts. No-man's-land is a place in the heart: pitted, cratered and empty as the moon….

Hidden in a soldier's tin box are a painting, a pocket watch, and a dance card - keepsakes of three lives. It is 1914. George Farrell cycles through the tranquil Cumberland fells to deliver a letter, unaware that it will change his life. George has fallen for the rich and beautiful daughter at the Manor House, Miss Violet, but when she lets slip the contents of the letter George is heartbroken to find that she is already promised to another man.

George escapes his heartbreak by joining the patriotic rush to war, but his past is not so easily avoided. His rite of passage into adulthood leaves him believing that no woman will be able to love the man he has become. A poignant story of love and redemption, The Moon Field explores the loss of innocence in a war that destroys everything except the bonds of the human heart.

Critic Reviews

"Deeply engaging and unsentimental…really memorable." (Charles Palliser, author of The Quincun)
"Allnatt gives her an affecting, beautifully written afterlife." (The Times)
"This is a beautifully written, poignant novel, lyrically descriptive of the landscape, detailed in the country life of the time and reminiscent of the gentle style of the genius peasant poet." (Choice Magazine)

Narration is dreadful

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

I was looking forward to listening to this book but it was impossible for me to get past the first 10 minutes. I cant understand how this audio book can be offered with the present narration - its the most amateur thing I have ever heard. What a shame

What could Judith Allnatt have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Get a better narrator

Would you be willing to try another one of Geraldine Sharrock’s performances?


You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I cant comment

Nice Story

A Nice Story well Written But poorly narrated to many false commas leading to unwarranted pauses were clearly the narrative should flow frustrating but worth perservering
