Klaus-Pierre is the love-child of a young Frenchwoman and a senior, married German officer. Klaus-Pierre never knew his father, who was killed before he was born, and his mother was rejected by her family of patriots and resistance workers. Cared for by his German family, Klaus-Pierre is loved and happy—but as he grows up in a Europe where old enemies are learning to cooperate, he tries to make his own "Act of Peace" with his French relatives. The result is a horrifying confrontation between the two families when they meet in Provence.

Ann Widdecombe is best known as Member of Parliament and for her broadcasting and journalism, but had long had ambitions to write novels, which led to her writing THE CLEMATIS TREE. She was born in 1947 and grew up moving around the country and abroad with her parents as her father served in the Admiralty. She was educated at the Universities of Birmingham and Oxford. She now lives in south London and in the picturesque village of Sutton Valence, Kent. She was a Home Office minister in John Major's government, Shadow Home Secretary under William Hague's leadership of the Tory party. She writes her novels on long train journeys and in Singapore when she visits her Chinese nanny.Review:
'she can spin a good story... warm in tone and wryly observant.' -- Kate Saunders THE TIMES 'It's a good read with a convincing plot' -- Anne Sebba THE JEWISH CHRONICLE 'Ann Widdecombe's impressive novel... Widdecombe skilfully and often movingly uses the boy's struggle with his own painful history to throw light on the troubled years between 1945 and the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989.' -- Margaret Walters THE SUNDAY TIMES
