It is Gillian Tindall's gift, in her quietly remarkable book, to remind us how much of the past still lives in the present.
Gillian Tindall is a master of miniaturist history, making a handful of people, a few places or a dramatic event stand for the much larger picture. Well-known for the quality of her writing and the meticulous nature of her research, she has written highly praised regional histories of Kentish Town (The Fields Beneath), London's Southbank (The House by the Thames) and the Latin Quarter of Paris (Footprints in Paris), as well as prize-winning novels and history. She lives in London.
"[A] modest little book, well on its way to becoming a modern classic." -- John Campbell Independent "Rich, satisfying, warm and utterly vivid" Mail on Sunday "A wonderful book... [Her] history is acutely visual... The book is a masterpiece of miniaturist history" Times Literary Supplement "This is history at its most interesting and compelling" Sunday Express "No other living foreign writer has gone deeper into the psyche of rural France" Observer
