it was amazing
Read in August, 2008

Beautifully written in luminous prose and built upon acute psychological observation, this is the story of a woman whose life is first illuminated and then blighted by her involvement with the Czech resistance during the second world war. It's told from the point of view of her son who slowly unearths his mother's hidden past in an effort to understand the suffocating sadness that surrounded her life. A masterpiece.
