Summary

Leonie Harcourt, nearly eighteen, has turned her back on England - she's in love with Parisian life, and with the young painter there at her godmother's house. But it's the summer of 1939; she's sent home, reluctantly, to a London preparing for war. A brief, ecstatic reunion with Luc, come to join de Gaulle's Free French, leaves her pregnant. She is despatched this time to an unknown aunt's farm in Somerset, unaware then that she will come to love it and never want to leave. Luc doesn't return after the war, but throughout her eventual marriage to another man and all the years ahead she keeps what he gave her to take care of - a small locked suitcase - and it is this that will reconnect her at last with the Gosselin family. It reopens festering wounds and terrible secrets of life in wartime Paris, and threatens the happiness of Jenni, her adored granddaughter.
