About this title


In 1952, Charles and Mary Freeman marry, take possession of a mansion high on a hill overlooking a small industrial town somewhere in the heart of England, and begin their family. This, Tim Pears' second novel, is the sweeping, rich, and astonishing tale of the first 30 years of their lives and the lives of their four children, Simon, James, Robert, and Alice.

Compellingly drawn and infinitely resonant, the stories of these four children, stories of both joy and tragedy, create a generous epic of the life of a family, and of a country.

From the Publisher:

"By the time [the children] are beginning to go their separate ways, Pears' mosaic of details has created a plausible quartet whose adult lives reflect Britain's middle class in turmoil. A solidly told and richly detailed tale." --San Francisco Examiner and Chronicle

"Pears is a writer of real gifts, able to record everything he sees and has seen and remembers." --Boston Globe

"There is a good deal in this novel to satisfy readers.... Pears writes with understanding about relationships between men and women." --Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post Book World

"A consistently entertaining and often captivating read." --Kirkus Reviews

"Pears beautifully evokes a young man's search for a home....Pears is a fine, thoughtful writer....Genuinely powerful." --Publishers Weekly
