"Stunning . . . . Magnificent. . . . Intricate. . . . Matching and arguably surpassing "Possession" in breadth and ambition." --"Bookforum"

Reseña del editor:

From the Booker Prize-winning, bestselling author of Possession a deeply affecting story of a singular family.
When children's book author Olive Wellwood's oldest son discovers a runaway named Philip sketching in the basement of a museum, she takes him into the storybook world of her family and friends. But the joyful bacchanals Olive hosts at her rambling country house--and the separate, private books she writes for each of her seven children--conceal more treachery and darkness than Philip has ever imagined. The Wellwoods' personal struggles and hidden desires unravel against a breathtaking backdrop of the cliff-lined shores of England to Paris, Munich, and the trenches of the Somme, as the Edwardian period dissolves into World War I and Europe's golden era comes to an end.
