Overview
Two sisters, born into privilege, are forced to make their way in a world turned upside down by war. One man transforms them both.

1910. Jessica and Phyllis Melville havegrown up at Ellinghurst, a family estate fraught with secrets. A headstrong beauty, Jessica longs forLondon the glitter and glamour of debutantelife while bookish Phyllisdreams in vain of attending university. Into their midst walks Oskar Grunewald, a frequent visitor fascinated by the house but alternately tormented and ignored by the Melville children. Oskar seeks refuge in Ellinghurst s enormous library. Meanwhile Theo, the adored Melville brother, eclipses everyone around him.

The Great War arrives to devastate and reshape their world. In a country unrecognizable from the idylls of their youth, the Melville sisters struggle to forge new paths without the guidance of the old rules. But Oskar s life has become entwined with theirs once again, in ways both immediate and unimaginable-- that will change all of their futures.

With elegance and insight, in prose characteristically stirring and seductive (The Economist) Clare Clark brings us a new story of a kind of old family whose reckoning with change will haunt and resonate for many generations."
