This little gem of a book was recommended to me by our librarian for our Reading Group. It was written in 1949 & then faded into oblivion until Persephone discovered it & re-printed it.
Without giving anything away it is the story of an English man who looks for his young son- born during the war to his French wife ( who was killed by Germans).
It is a wonderful story which will that both move & challenge you.
Quite a short book & I confess I was so captivated by it that I read it in one (quite long) sitting on a sunbed in the garden on that hot day we had this summer!
Can't wait to see what the rest of the group makes of it at next meeting.
A really good story which will make you think long afterwards.
