Then a new patient declares that he is the doctors half-brother, the product of a union between Lescziaks Jewish mother and a German prisoner of war. The confrontation jolts Lescziak out of his complacency: suddenly, his failing marriage, his wifes infatuation with his best friend, and the disappearance of his young lover and suicidal patient, Nella, close in on him.

Lescziak escapes into the recesses of his imagination, where his mothers affair with the German prisoner comes to life in precise, gorgeous detail. The novel unfolds into a romance set in Englands Lake District in wartime, as Busch shows how our past presses on the present.
