really liked it

Post-World War II Britain, as described in this novel, is a politically interesting place. The generation of children born and raised by war couples seems irrevocably damaged. The main character, Frances, however provides these children with a home and "family" as they break free from their own parents and struggle with their political beliefs. These intelligent and critical children become adults working in the world and political climate they have despised, some trying to do go (despite the bureaucracy) and some still making trouble. An interesting novel that made me think about the long-lasting effects of war.
