Inhaltsangabe: Twenty-five years after the death of their baby brother in his crib, a death that still haunts them both, sisters Isabel and Nina are brought back together by the birth of Isabel's son, unlocking searing hidden memories and prompting the ultimate betrayal and a shocking tragedy. 40,000 first printing."
Rezension: Long-buried secrets and resentments bubble lazily to the surface over a few short weeks when Nina, a London photographer and artist, goes to the English countryside to help her outwardly perfect older sister Isabel, who has just suffered through a difficult birth. Though the household--Isabel's husband Richard, friend Edward, baby Antony, and a local nanny--seems hermetically sealed against the world, past and present rear up to strike the sisters. "This house is stiff with things that can't be said," observes Nina. Stifling heat, menace, and memories radiate from these pages, keeping the reader on edge. Helen Dunmore, winner of the Orange Prize, heightens sometimes overly obvious drama with rich, sensual prose.
