Synopsis:
A tale spanning from the Victorian era through World War I finds famous children's book author Olive Wellwood taking in a runaway who reminds her of her own characters and exposing the boy to dark truths about her family's summer bacchanals at their rambling country house. By the Booker Prize-winning author of Possession.

Review:
"A.S. Byatt's hugely ambitious new novel....is an eloquent testament to the dangerous power of both art and myth."

Elizabeth Lowry, Times Literary Supplement, 05/15/2009

Review:
"Byatt is brilliant on the gathering forces of England and Germany at the beginning of the 20th century, their contrasting attitudes towards the part that the land plays in the collective unconscious, their differing forms of nostalgia....[She] reminds us in chilling fashion of the perils of artistic creation, and the duties of its exponents to find out the difference between what is real and what is not."

Alex Clark, Guardian (London), 05/09/2009
