A NovelBook - 2018
It is the seventeenth century and a wall is being raised around Wychwood, transforming the great house and its park into a private realm of ornamental lakes, grandiose gardens, and majestic avenues. Three centuries later, far away in Berlin, another wall is raised. In 1989, as the Cold War peters out, a threat from a different kind of conflict reaches Wychwood's walls. With poignancy and grace, Lucy Hughes-Hallett illuminates a place where past and present are inextricably linked by stories, legends, and history - and by one patch of peculiar ground.
