Random Harvest by James Hilton


Random Harvest, by James Hilton, was published in 1941. Hilton also wrote Lost Horizon and Good-bye Mr. Chips. Random Harvest was made into the very popular film, of the same name, in 1942 starring:  Ronald Coleman and Greer Garson. It tells the story of a severely wounded World War I veteran who lost his memory, and his struggles to reconnect with life both past and present. World War II is looming on the horizon, and both the book and the film give you a good insight into pre-war England. The book is different from the film in many ways, but both are excellent. Tired of today’s mostly crap fiction? Give Random Harvest a shot.
