The Landscape of Love | [Sally Beauman]

The Landscape of Love

The year is 1967. Thirteen-year-old Maisie is at her decaying family home, once a medieval abbey. Lucas, an artist and friend, is painting a portrait of Maisie and her sisters. Maisie embarks on a portrait of her own: telling the story of herself, her sisters and their lovers, and of her friend, Daniel Nunn. Twenty-three years later, Lucas's now-famous portrait features in a retrospective of his work. Daniel, obsessed by the sisters and determined to understand what happened that summer at the abbey, pursues answers.

    "A great listen"

    I've greatly enjoyed listening to this and although the plot is sometimes predictable, I was hooked into listening as soon as I started. Great literature it isn't, but it's well enough written and very well read by both readers. I enjoyed the shifts between the 'Summer of Love', 1967, and the 1980s and 90s and the evocation of both of these times. I recognised references in the plot to several movies (I think) - the main protagonist Dan is a film buff - but I may be wrong. Anyway that isn't something that is blunt in the novel. The story is told through the eyes of 3 different characters - Dan and 2 of the sisters - and as the layers of deceit are revealed, people and events shift and change in their nature and things are not as they seemed to be. Thoroughly absorbing and highly recommended.
