A moving exploration of conflict, loss and love from award-winning author Graham Swift. In 1972, Robert Beech, First World War survivor and present-day armaments maker, is killed by a car bomb. The event breaks the career of his son Harry, a news photographer, and comes close to destroying his granddaughter Sophie.

Ten years later, the Falklands War has begun and both Harry, now working as an aerial photographer, and Sophie, visiting an analyst in New York, are haunted by a past that has scarred and divided them.

    " I didn't love it. Have taste and style shifted so fast in just 30 years? This 1980s novel feels unnecessarily withholding. Too much retrospective explaining. Clever but cold. "

    " Each time I picked up it up to read I would lose myself in the characters. I will definitely read more books by Graham Swift. "

    " I was on the fence for the first half of this book and would probably only give it 2 stars because I couldn't stand the sections of the book from 'Sophie's' point of view. I did find the latter half more engaging though as the characters musings became less self involved and more reflective. "

    " It was circular and nonsense. I sped read a majority of the books and did not miss a thing! "
