From the author of the bestselling Suite Française.
Set in the rural French town in Burgundy that would also form the backdrop to the bestselling Suite Française, Fire in the Blood is the story of Silvio, his cousin's wife Hélène, her second husband Françoise, and of the truths, deaths, marriages, children, houses and mills that bind them with love and hatred, deception and betrayal.
Mesmerising...another gem from a glittering career cut tragically short
A literary find of the same quality as Suite Française...it has a universal resonance by exhibiting not only what people do to each other but what the passing of time does to us all
Magnificently atmospheric... She is so clever, quick and observant, that every character in the story bounds into life
Gripping and full of interest...it confirms Némirovsky's brilliance as a storyteller with a deep understanding of the hidden flaws and cruelties in the human heart
