From the acclaimed author of FALL ON YOUR KNEES -- an international bestseller -- comes a mesmerizing new novel. The sun came out after the war and our world went Technicolour. Everyone had the same idea. Let's get married. Let's have kids. Let's be the ones who do it right. For Madeleine McCarthy - high-spirited and eight years old - her family's posting to a quiet air force base near the Canadian-American border is at first welcome, secure as she is in the love of her beautiful mother, and unaware that her father, Jack, is caught up in his own web of secrets. The early 1960s - a time of optimism infused with the excitement of the space race but overshadowed with the menace of the Cold War - is filtered through a rich imagination as Madeleine draws us into her world.

As the tension in the McCarthy's household builds, Jack must decide where his loyalties lie, and Madeleine learns
