Summary

When war photographer Jo returns from her latest assignment in Afghanistan and moves into the Brighton flat she's just inherited, she hopes to restore equilibrium to her chaotic life. But images and events of her recent past and the reading of her great-grandmother Elizabeth's diary haunt her night and day, forcing Jo to come to terms with demons she thought she could leave behind.

Written as a long confession to Jo's former lover Susie, alternating with Elizabeth's account of nursing Indian soldiers at the Brighton Pavilion in 1915, The Repercussions--Catherine Hall's most ambitious novel to date--is a sweeping narrative dealing with the psychological and emotional reality of war, as well as race, guilt, love, and loss.
