Abstract:

Anna is a young Danish woman living in London at the turn of the century. Homesick and lonely for her husband, she keeps her innermost thoughts in a diary. When she dies, these memoirs, spanning sixty years, will be published to international acclaim and huge commercial success. But as Anna's granddaughter discovers many years later, one entry has been cut out of the original journals, which may shed light on an unsolved multiple murder - the stabbing death of an elderly woman and her daughter - and the mysterious disappearance of an infant child. Vintage Vine, this novel alternates between passages from Anna's best-selling memoirs and the thoughts of Anna's granddaughter, recent heir to Anna's estate. With unforgettable characters and a plot rich in complexity, the mystery unfolds like a dark flower, petal by petal. Another tour de force from Barbara Vine.
