Overview

Rosie Thomas's most touching story yet, set in the haunting and seductive vistas of Egypt bestselling author of The Kashmir Shawl

The unexpected arrival of her willful teenage granddaughter, Ruby, brings life and disorder to 82-year-old Iris Black's old house in Cairo. Ruby, driven by her fraught relationship with her own mother to run away from England, is seeking refuge with the grandmother she hasn't seen in years. An unlikely bond develops between them as Ruby helps Iris to record her fading memories of the glittering, cosmopolitan Cairo of World War II, and of her one true love--the enigmatic Captain Xan Molyneux--whom she lost to the ravages of conflict. This long-ago love has shaped Iris's life and, as becomes increasingly apparent, the lives of her daughter and granddaughter. And it's about to affect them all, again, in ways they could not have imagined.
