Summary
A tale of three generations of an English family with roots in London and Cornwall, and a cherished painting that has passed from generation to generation and threatens to tear the family apart
Summary
Artist's daughter, Penelope can look back on a full and varied life: a Bohemian childhood in London and Cornwall, an unhappy wartime marriage, and the one man she truly loved. She has brought up three children - and learned to accept them as they are. Yet, she is far too energetic and independent to settle sweetly into pensioned-off old-age
