Summary
'I'm writing a history of the world,' she says . . . And in the process, my own.' Claudia Hampton is dying. A professional historian in her seventies, she casts her mind back through her own life to identify the currents and winds upon which she has been cast adrift. We see how this strong, independent woman, growing up between the wars, finds her life subtly entwined with others. She meets and loses her true love in war-torn Egypt, finds an untrustworthy lover, gives birth to a daughter she cannot love and attempts to reconcile who she has become with the woman she always wants to be..
