Lively's previous book, "The Photograph" has sold over 85,000 copies in paperback, and this beautifully written and touching story will delight all her fans. She won the Booker Prize in 1987 for her novel "Moon Tiger". 'Nourishing fare from a fine writer on sparkling form' "Daily Mail"
In 1935, privileged misfit Lorna meets the love of her life. Falling for a pennyless and bohemian artist, Matt, she abandons her stuffy Kensington existence in London and moves to a rustic cottage in Somerset. A baby, Molly, is born, but the coming war takes Matt - and Lorna's dreams - away.
