Staff Reviews


This classic and its protagonist- kind, brilliant, honourable-to-a-fault, emotionally repressed Christopher Tietjens– have thoroughly captured my heart. A paragon of integrity in a corrupted age, aristocratic but ill-starred Tietjens is forced to re-evaluate his unyielding standards in the face of a world shattered by war. Piercing, compassionate, deeply humane. Brings to life a lost age, a crucial period in history, and a cast of superbly realised characters.

— Reva

Description


Tietjens is the last of a breed, the Tory gentleman, which the Great War, marriage and qualities inherent in his nature define and unravel. Opposite him is Macmaster, a Scot, different in class and culture, at once friend and foil.
