A Legacy by Sybille Bedford

The narrator of this novel is seven year old Francesca, who tells us about the life of her father and his two German families in Kaiser's Germany, before the beginning of the First World War. The author takes us within the bosom of these families, providing a witty elegy to - and a celebration of - a world long gone.
Sybille Bedford was born in Germany.
