During WW2, a young South African soldier is captured and sent to a POW camp in Italy where he fights to survive, and falls in love with a fellow soldier in the process.  A beautifully wrought novel, Bitter Eden focuses on the emotions that are brought to the surface by the physical closeness of survival in the male-only camps, and leaves our characters not only changed by war, but by love.
