One of the best books I've ever read, but not for the feint-hearted. This is a story of revenge on many levels. It starts off with a young English woman wanting to learn the identity of her natural parents, for whom she has created romantic fantasies to explain their decision to place her up for adoption. The truth is slowly revealed but so are so many questions about the human condition, nature versus nurture, the essence of good character and human frailty. The story asks the question of how far a person will distort truth to be loved, and isn't this but a human quality? And isn't it human to turn our back on someone who did not love us when we needed it most? PD James' genious is reflected in her writing, a style that is inimitable in its beauty and clarity.
