Colonel Lewis Morgan wird mit seiner Familie in ein herrschaftliches Haus an der Elbe einquartiert. Seine Frau kann aber nicht verstehen, dass der Hausbesitzer Stefan Lubert nicht ausziehen muss.

Nach und nach entwickelt sich eine unerhörte Nähe zwischen ihr und Stefan Lubert ... Ein selten beschriebenes Kapitel deutscher Geschichte - Rhidian Brook zeichnet ein enorm differenziertes Bild von einem Land, das am Boden liegt, von einer verstörten Bevölkerung, aber auch von dem Hoffnungsschimmer nach Tod und Vernichtung.

Sein Debut 'The Testimony of Taliesin Jones' wurde vielfach ausgezeichnet, u .a. mit dem Somerset Maugham Award. Er lebt mit seiner Familie in London."
