Alone in Pimlico, Anthony has a moment of self-knowledge: the best is over. Meanwhile above a river bank in southern France a little girl is screaming.
Sara Kestelman reads from the new and disturbing novel by Rose Tremain. Set in the Cevennes, an untamed area of southern France where traditions and secrets run deep, it is the story of two very different sets of siblings.
Veronica and Anthony are privileged, cultured and English. Aramon and Audrun are French, rooted in the old stone mas and the land around it that their family have cultivated for generations, and in their shared and violent past. When these two very different worlds collide, a chain of events is set in unstoppable motion.
Alone in Pimlico, Anthony has a moment of self-knowledge: the best is over. Meanwhile, above a river bank in southern France, a little girl is screaming.
Abridged by Sally Marmion.
