Consequences

The Booker Prize-winning author's first novel since "The Photograph" is a powerful story of growth, death, and rebirth, and a study of the previous century--its major and minor events, its shaping of public consciousness, and its changing of lives.

Destinies can change in an instant. In 1935, privileged misfit Lorna meets the love of her life. Falling for a penniless and bohemian artist, Matt, she abandons her stuffy Kensington existence in London and moves to a rustic cottage in Somerset. A baby, Molly, is born, but the coming war takes Matt - and Lorna's dreams - away ...Lorna's decisions and their unforeseeable consequences come to shape the stories first of her daughter, Molly, and then her granddaughter, Ruth. Consequences tells of three generations of women in their own twentieth-century times united by their shared experiences of love, pain, fate and happiness.
