Publisher's Summary

Here is a missing piece of the remarkable posthumous legacy of Irene Nemirovsky, author of the internationally acclaimed Suite Francaise.The novel, only now assembled in its entirety, teems with the intertwined lives of an insular French village in the years before the war, when "peace" was less important as a political state than as a coveted personal condition: the untroubled pinnacle of happiness.At the center of the tale is Silvio. In his younger years he fled the boredom of the village and made a life of travel and adventure. Now he's returned, living in a farmer's hovel in the middle of the woods, and, much to his family's chagrin, perfectly content with his solitude.As his narration unfolds, we are given an intimate picture of the loves and infidelities, the scandals, the youthful ardor and regrets of age that tie Silvio to the long-guarded secrets of the past.

Well Written & Enjoyable

This is the first book that I have read by this author. I was reading a local magazine and the editor had suggested it. The book was very visual and I could identify with the characters. The twist in the plot really threw me for a loop. Overall a great book!
