From the Inside Flap:

Born into a poor family in the rocky heart of France in the year of Waterloo, Martin Nadaud grew up to become a stone mason, a revolutionary and a Member of Parliament. After the failure of the 1848 revolution, he was forced to flee to a long and lonely exile in England but made a triumphant return to his homeland in 1870. With unique access to family letters and personal papers, Gillian Tindall has constructed a moving and compelling portrait of a working man set against the turbulent times in which he lived.

About the Author:

Gillian Tindall is the author of two enduring books on the history of places, and a study of their meaning to writers. Two of her novels deal with rural France under the Occupation, and an early novel, which won the Somerset Maugham Award, is set in Paris. Her most recent book about nineteenth-century France, Célestine, won high acclaim from critics and from the Franco-British Society, which awarded the book its prestigious Literary Prize.
