Flora Trevelyan is a 10-year-old misfit, despised by her selfish and indolent parents, and left to wander the streets of a small French town while her parents prepare to depart for life in colonial India. There she befriends the locals, acquires an extensive vocabulary of French foul language, and encounters the privileged lifestyle of the elegant middle-class British families holidaying in 1920s France.

Introduced for the first time to kindly, civilized, and - above all - caring people, Flora falls helplessly and hopelessly in love with not one but three young men. Over the next 40 years, Flora will grow from an awkward schoolgirl into a stunning beauty and explore, consummate, and finally resolve each of these affairs. Download and start listening now!

    " This novel was a good companion for a trip. At times I forgot I wasn't reading 19th-century literature and came across overt sexual passages that brought me back into the present. "

    " Little Flora makes friends with holidaymakers, and finds herself falling in love. The book is about her growing up and learning about life. Reassuring if rather too many coincidences, and pleasant enough characters on the whole. "
