For AnnaMoreIt was between the wars, in the lush countryside of Southern France, that Annas parents became lovers. When their idyll is shattered amidst bitter recriminations, there is a marriage, then exile, then poverty - the ultimate test of love. For Anna too there is passion - but she is forced into a loveless marriage and her daughter must never know who her real father is. Though Anna lives her life with courage and determination, it is a life built on a tissue of lies, and the repercussions of her actions echo down the years. Secrets may never be spoken, but diaries and letters can be time bombs of truth waiting to explode.
