This book starts in 1947, which was where I initially wanted to go. We meet a group of characters (it's an ensemble piece)... What the novel then does is to move backwards in time. We move back to 1944 to the drama of war, back to 1941, ultimately, and that movement takes us back through those characters' emotional journeys, and then covers their secrets and the connections between them.
