The Booker Prize winning author’s sweeping saga of three generations of women“One of the most accomplished writers of fiction of our day” (The Washington Post ) follows the lives and loves of three women–Lorna, Molly, and Ruth–from World War II-era London to the close of the century. Told in Lively’s incomparable prose, this is a powerful story of growth, death, and renewal, as well as a penetrating look at how the major and minor events of the twentieth century changed lives. By chronicling the choices and consequences that comprise one family’s history, Lively offers an intimate and profound reaffirmation of the force of connection between generations.
Penelope Lively’s adult novel Moon Tiger won the Booker Prize. In addition, her children’ s book The Ghost of Thomas Kempe won the Carnegie Medal, and A Stitch in Time won the Whitbread Book of the Year award.
