Product Description:

Hélène is a troubled young girl. Neglected by her self-absorbed mother and her adored but distant father, she longs for love and for freedom. As first the Great War and then the Russian Revolution rage in the background, she grows from a lonely, melancholy child to an angry young woman intent on destruction.

The Wine of Solitude is a powerful tale of an unhappy family in difficult times and a woman prepared to wreak a shattering revenge.

Review:

"A wonderfully atmospheric novel...captivating and searingly honest... A brilliant coming of age novel" (Helen Dunmore Guardian, Books of the Year)

"Haunting...profound...exquisitely wrought" ( Independent on Sunday)

"The tangle of this unhappy family is beautifully and ruthlessly analysed... The relationship between mother and daughter is described with uncompromising lucidity... Némirovsky evokes the places of her childhood with a sensuous clarity" ( Guardian)

" The Wine of Solitude is an end-of-innocence story... It is Némirovsky's powers of social observation...the implacable eye for the nuances of human conduct, that make The Wine of Solitude so memorable" ( Financial Times)

"Beautifully written... Her ability to evoke the feeling of time and especially place is remarkable" ( Scotsman)
