Samenvatting

This collection of stories by one of Britain&;s most beloved novelists depicts domestic life during World War II as seen through the eyes of both children and adults

In &;The Red-haired Miss Daintreys,&; four six-foot-tall sisters capture the imagination of young Rebecca when she and her family are on holiday. Beautifully crafted and informed by Lehmann&;s eye for telling detail, it is a moving meditation on familial ties, romantic love, and the end of an era. In &;When the Waters Came&; and &;A Dream of Winter,&; both the deprivations of war and a swarm of bees take their toll on the inhabitants of a small English village&;afflicting one family in particular. &;Wonderful Holidays&; is the tale of a divorced woman who cares for two children while a wounded veteran of World War I longs for his absent wife. And the title story is an exploration of the unlikely friendship between two families&;one privileged, one poor&;and the tragedy that ensues when a band of gypsies sets up camp on the outskirts of town.

These five stories will sweep readers into a world where grieving is a necessary part of the human condition and love can flourish in the most unexpected places. Morality, the class system, the grim realities of war, love and loss&;Lehmann&;s trademark themes are on vivid display in this remarkable collection.
