In remote Snowdonia in 1944, a German Jew interrogates Rudolf Hess, a prisoner of war struggles with his sense of shame and a young woman dreams of escape, the world and the glamour of cream horns in Lyons Corner Houses. Subtle and engrossing, this is a book about language and identity, about finding a place and about the important things – territory for sheep, and race for humans – that are passed down through the matriarchal line.
