This attractive family saga opens with Sarah, recently married to Charles, furnishing a cottage in Scotland and starting on a life in sharp contrast to her own experiences in wartime London and the years Charles spent as a prisoner of war...
Their full entrance into village life is helped by Sarah's grandparents, who have given them the land on which they have built their cottage. Sarah and Charles work together, collaborating in translations for a publisher, whilst Charles also embarks on writing his autobiography. Yet it soon becomes not books, but life itself which increasingly engrosses him and Sarah. In particular Frederica, the daughter of Sarah’s frivolous and pleasure-seeking sister, commands their sympathy and love.
One by one the characters of a large, attractive family make their appearance, and their relationships are woven into a deeply satisfying story. But it is the maturing of Frederica from her infancy into a young woman which stands at the centre, and it is through her that the nexus of family problems is finally resolved...
