Summary
"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 designed by Mr. Norris, a visionary landscaper. In this enclosed world, everyone has something to hide after decades of civil war. Dissenters shelter in the woods, lovers rendezvous in secret enclaves, and outsiders--migrants fleeing the plague--find no mercy. Three centuries later, far away in Berlin, another wall is raised. At Wychwood, an erotic entanglement over one hot, languorous weekend in 1961 is overshadowed by news of historic change. Young Nell, whose father manages the estate, grows up amid dramatic upheavals as the house is invaded: a pop festival by the lake, a television crew in the dining room, a storm brewing. In 1989, as the Cold War wanes, a threat from a different kind of conflict reaches Wychwood's walls"--From dust jacket flap
