Za kratkog, zlatnog razdoblja vladavine kralja Edvarda vii. Rosie McCosh i njezine tri vrlo različite sestre odrastaju u ekscentričnom domu u Kentu, između dječaka obitelji Pitt s jedne i dječaka obitelji Pendennis s druge strane. Ali, njihove dane dječjih pustolovina zasjenjuje početak rata, koji će ih zadesiti na ulasku u odraslu dob.
Mladići se raštrkaju duž zapadnog bojišta. Rosie se suočava s izazovima života onih koji ostaju kod kuće. Zbunjena svojom ljubavlju prema dvojici mladića – vojniku pješaku i slavnom zrakoplovcu – prisiljena je snalaziti se u izvanrednim vremenima. Mogu li ona i njezine sestre izgraditi novi život u mogućnostima i razorenosti nakon Velikog rata?
Veličanstven i dirljiv roman Louisa de Bernieresa slijedi živote nezaboravne postave likova koji nastoje ustanoviti kakvu je sreću moguće sazdati od ruševina staroga svijeta.

Read information about the authorNovelist Louis de Bernières was born in London in 1954. He joined the army at 18 but left after spending four months at Sandhurst. After graduating from the Victoria University of Manchester, he took a postgraduate certificate in Education at Leicester Polytechnic and obtained his MA at the University of London.
Before writing full-time, he held many varied jobs including landscape gardener, motorcycle messenger and car mechanic. He also taught English in Colombia, an experience which determined the style and setting of his first three novels, The War of Don Emmanuel's Nether Parts (1990), Señor Vivo and the Coca Lord (1991) and The Troublesome Offspring of Cardinal Guzman (1992), each of which was heavily influenced by South American literature, particularly 'magic realism'.
In 1993, he was selected as one of the 20 'Best of Young British Novelists 2' promotion in Granta magazine. His fourth novel, Corelli's Mandolin, was published in the following year, winning the Commonwealth Writers Prize (Best Book). It was also shortlisted for the Sunday Express Book of the Year. Set on the Greek island of Cephalonia during the Second World War, the novel tells the story of a love affair between the daughter of a local doctor and an Italian soldier. It has become a worldwide bestseller and has now been translated into over 30 languages. A film adaptation of the novel was released in 2001, and the novel has also been adapted for the stage. In 2001, Red Dog was published - a collection of stories inspired by a statue of a dog encountered on a trip to a writers' festival in Australia in 1998.
