Summary
The fabulous but wavering old Lady Peverill, known as "Cuckoo", lives with her husband, the Napoleon-mad military historian Archie. Dissatisfied with all that surrounds her and overcome by sheer boredom, she ventures down to the lake at the edge of their estate. Pockets filled with stones, she begins to walk tragically into the water only to be rescued by a sparsely clothed twenty-year-old, Marcus Pollock. Feigning that he merely saved her from an 'accident', he is brought back to the villa where he moves in, admired by Archie for his uncanny resemblance to l'Aiglon, Napoleon's only son. Cue the arrival of Marcus' girlfriend as well as a whole horde of eccentric film-makers and you have the stage set for an effortlessly entertaining story. Set in cosmopolitan London, Cap Ferrat, as well as in the home of a German family within the shadow of the Wall, Voices in the Garden is a highly entertaining read, as well as a heart-felt tale of mature and immature love
