Product Description
Wrapped in the roots of the sycamore was a skeleton; the remains of a woman, between twenty-five and thirty. She had carried a child . . .' At the close of the Second World War Intelligence Officer Gus Clifton returns to London. On his arm is Krista, the German wife he married secretly in Berlin. For his sisters, this broken woman is nothing more than the enemy. For Nella, Gus's loyal fiancUe, it is a terrible betrayal. These three friends wonder what hold Krista has over decent, honourable Gus. And, they ask themselves, how far they will have to go to permanently get her out of their home, their future, their England?Wrapped in the roots of the sycamore was a skeleton; the remains of a woman, between twenty-five and thirty.

Elizabeth Buchan lives in London with her husband and two children and worked in publishing for several years. During this time, she wrote her first books, which included a biography for children- Beatrix Potter- The Story of the Creator of Peter Rabbit (Frederick Warne). Her first novel for adults, Daughters of the Storm, was set during the French Revolution. Her second, Light of the Moon, took as its subject a female undercover agent operating in occupied France during the Second World War. Her third novel, Consider the Lily, described by the Sunday Times as 'the literary equivalent of the English country garden' and by the Independent as 'a gorgeously well-written tale- funny, sad, sophisticated', won the 1994 Romantic Novel of the Year Award. An international bestseller, there are over 320,000 copies in print in the UK. Her subsequent novel, Perfect Love, was described as 'a powerful story- wise, observant, deeply-felt, with elements that all women will recognize with a smile - or a shudder'. Against Her Nature, published in 1998, was described as 'a modern day Vanity Fair . . . brilliantly done', and Secrets of the Heart was praised by the Mail on Sunday as 'a finely written, highly intelligent romance, without any of the slushiness usually associated with the genre'. Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman has been described by The Times as 'Wise, melancholy, funny and sophisticated . . .' Her most recent novel is The Good Wife.
