This is a warm, human saga of a family of craftsmen in eighteenth-century France. The violence and terror of the French Revolution serves as the background to the tragic climax of the novel. Daphne du Maurier's ancestor Robert Busson du Maurier, who trained in the Busson family glass business, fled to London at the start of the French Revolution. This novel is based on letters written by his sister, Madame Sophie Duval. First published in 1963, this 1969 Penguin edition features cover artwork by Colin Mier.
