It is 1946 and Barbary has been banished to England by her beautiful, indolent mother to be cared for by her barrister father and his new family. Having grown up in the sunshine of Provence, allowed to run wild with the Maquis, experienced collaboration, betrayal and death, Barbary finds it hard to adjust to the civilised and drab society in which she is now expected to live. A beautifully written, nuanced story that’s filled with haunting images of post-war London.
