Description

Alex Mendez, bored with the business empire he's created in London, leaves his wife Lalka behind and retreats to an isolated chateau in Provence. Both Polish Jews - and now with time on their hands, as they seemingly have little left to share - they seek their own personal revelations. Whilst Alex broods in Provence, gradually becoming aware of the chateau's ambiguous history during the Second World War, Lalka sets out for Poland with journalist friend Katie. But what was planned as a holiday and an assertion of independence comes to have other significance.

A powerful exploration of the current and past lives of a group of people scarred by the result of war, Children of the Rose is a strong, emotional novel - written with Feinstein's characteristically delicate, brilliant prose - about the way in which memories can destroy lives and also, ultimately, provide redemption.
