A psychologically suspenseful novel of three generations of sisters: "An edgy story.. .Joel has a wicked sense of humor." -The Age (Australia). In a novel that ranges through the decades of the twentieth century, we meet sisters Jennifer and Charlotte, who share both a dark sense of humor and a dark secret; their mother and aunt, who grew up during World War II and endured the bombing of London; and the generation before them-Bertha and Jemima-whose lives took a dramatic and deadly turn during England's ill-fated general strike of 1926. As the lies, betrayals, and hidden mysteries of the past unspool, we come to know these three sets of siblings-and how both family history and world history shaped their lives-in a riveting saga from the award-winning author of The Second-Last Woman in England.
