Synopsis: Zoe and her mother have led a quiet life together in their London flat, a life that everyone thought would continue in the same manner forever. But when her mother suddenly finds love again and moves with her new husband to Nice, Zoe embraces her newfound freedom and seems to thrive in her independent life. Her liberation is cut short when her stepfather unexpectedly dies and leaves behind mysteries and less wealth than he appeared to have. Zoe?s mother falls strangely ill, and while Zoe tries to come to terms with an uncertain future, she begins to follow the movements of a reclusive and alluring man. ?Brookner works a spell on the reader; being under it is both an education and a delight,? said The Washington Post Book World of Anita Brookner, and she stays true to form in The Bay of Angels, another stunning novel by a master.
