'Electrifying... Hughes has Tolstoy's vision and an imaginative reach of his own, combined with an informed, analytical intelligence; the result is historical fiction of rare integrity and distinction.' --Hilary MantelAbout the Author:
Richard Hughes (1900-1976) published his first novel, A High Wind in Jamaica, in 1926. It became a bestseller in England and America, won the Prix Femina in France, and has since established itself as a modern classic. Hughes's other books include In Hazard, The Fox in the Attic and The Wooden Shepherdess, the first two volumes of an unfinished trilogy, "The Human Predicament," about the rise of German Fascism and the onset of World War II.
