Abstract:

A generation has been lost on the Western Front. The dead have been buried, a harsh peace forged in the halls of Versailles, and the howl of shells replaced by the wail of saxophones as the jazz age begins. But ghosts linger - that long-ago golden summer of 1914 tugging at the memory of Martin Rilke and his British cousins, the Grevilles. From the Countess to the chauffeur, the inhabitants of Abingdon Pryory seek to forget the past and adjust their lives to a new era in which old values, social codes, and sexual mores have been irretrievably swept away.
