Description - The Colonel's Daughter by Rose Tremain
At the moment that Colonel Browne is standing in the shallow end of the swimming pool of the Hotel Alphenrose, preparing for his later afternoon dip, his daughter Charlotte, carrying a suitcase, is getting out of her car back in England, preparing to rob the ancestral home. It is not just another day- it is the culmination of hundreds of days, hundreds of disappointments and misunderstandings, and thousands of very small lies. . . . . . .
