Review:

"A survival story with great atmosphere. Endlessly fascinating" -- TOM CONTI "This moving and profound novel is perfectly constructed, and admirable in its configurations of place and period" Times "He has reaffirmed the importance of character in the novel; his Anna and Hartmann are as real, as moving and convincing as Anna Karenina and Vronsky or Colette's Cheri and Lea. It is a novel to cherish and delight in" Scotsman "I would urge those who appreciated John Fowles's The French Lieutenant's Woman to try this one; they will not be disappointed. They might well think it superior" Sunday Telegraph "[A] story of restrained emotions played out in a period setting among picturesque locations... Faulks gives every sign of being a real novelist, who thinks and feels through the written word" Guardian

From the Publisher:

From the acclaimed author of Birdsong, Charlotte Gray and On Green Dolphin Street.
