Read full description of the books:
I went into this story unsure and a bit wary, it didn't resonate much with me. But the more I read the more I realized I was falling in love with every aspect of the tale. Hilary is a poet and widower, who goes to France, due his friend Pierre's belief that his long lost son has been taken in by an orphanage. Hilary hasn't seen his son since the day of his birth 5 years ago, and therefore knows nothing about him or even whether he would recognize him again. Spending his time in a run down and stifling hotel with strange and unfriendly people, Hilary can only count on the brief meetings with the little boy Jean to make him come alive. He of course has no idea whether boy is his or not, and soon time and money are running out for him to make a decision.
I cannot describe how beautifully written this book is. Each page flows like liquid art, and tugs on my heartstrings. I finished it and started crying.

Laski was born to a prominent family of Jewish intellectuals: Neville Laski was her father, Moses Gaster her grandfather, and socialist thinker Harold Laski her uncle. She was educated at Lady Barn House School and St Paul's Girls' School in Hammersmith. After a stint in fashion, she read English at Oxford, then married publisher John Howard, and worked in journalism. She began writing once her son and daughter were born.
A well-known critic as well as a novelist, she wrote books on Jane Austen and George Eliot. Ecstasy (1962) explored intense experiences, and Everyday Ecstasy (1974) their social effects. Her distinctive voice was often heard on the radio on The Brains Trust and The Critics; and she submitted a large number of illustrative quotations to the Oxford English Dictionary.
An avowed atheist, she was also a keen supporter of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. Her play, The Offshore Island, is about nuclear warfare.
