In her most touching novel yet, Penelope Lively writes about a young woman, her daughter and her granddaughter, their contrasting lives and their achievement of love. Lorna escapes her conventional Kensington family to marry artist, Matt. They settle in a small cottage in Somerset, where their daughter Molly is born. But World War II puts an end to their immense happiness. Molly will have to wait longer to find love as she gamely grapples with work and sex in 1960s London; while Ruth, Lorna's granddaughter, has to wait even longer still. An enthralling examination of interweaving love and history, "Consequences" pinpoints the moments when three women in very different times find love.
