Summary
This is a remarkable story of love, loss and hidden truths. A novel charged throughtout with a sense of the fragility of our lives. Kathy, Ruth and Tommy were pupils at Hailsham - situated deep in the English countryside. The children were tenderly sheltered from the outside world, brought up to believe they were special and that their personal welfare was crucial. But for what reason were they really there?
Summary
A reunion with two childhood friends--Ruth and Tommy--draws Kath and her companions on a nostalgic odyssey into the supposedly idyllic years of their lives at Hailsham, an isolated private school in the serene English countryside, and a dramatic confrontation with the truth about their childhoods and about their lives in the present
