Now she is eighteen, Barbara leaves home in Ireland hoping to escape from the memory of the tragic death of her little brother, and begin a new life as an au pair in London looking after young Matilda Finch. Almost as soon as she arrives in London, the family announce they are off to the Camargue in France for the summer taking Barbara with them. She is soon aware that she is one of a long string of au pairs and that the Finch family has problems: Olivia is beautiful but brittle; her husband John stiflingly affable, and their daughter is constantly ill.
Over the summer, Barbara’s sexuality is awakened by someone who leads her to believe that she could be falling in love for the first time. Yet when she confides her doubts about the Finches, she realises she has illuminated issues far beyond her own understanding, and that the consequences will be devastating.
Set in the eerie salt marshes of southern France, inhabited by the famous white horses, flamingos and black bulls, I Remember is a remarkable story of deception, passion and ultimate redemption.Biografía del autor:
