The Child's Child: A Novel

Comparing the experiences of John and Maud with those of Grace and Andrew more than 60 years later offers much scope for thought and consideration about how far society has come --- and how far we still have to go.

The overwhelming sadness of the events in both stories is leavened by the matter-of-fact firmness with which Vine measures them out. Not even fans who expect more felonies will be able to put this one down.
