She couldn’t think where to start. Everything that came to her was not to be put down and after half an hour she was still sitting with a blank page and a streak of ink along her thumb. Everything that came to her was not to be put down and after half an hour she was still sitting with a blank page and a streak of ink along her thumb m very cheerful to bring up the impending marriage of Angelika Samson to an officer, or their hopeless attempts at finding Fräulein Schulze.

It is Emanuel's twenty-first birthday, and eleven-year-old Eva and her sisters are helping transform Gaglow for a glorious party. But their brother's arrival is overshadowed by the talk of war that comes with him from Hamburg, and when he is wrenched from the family to serve his country, Eva knows that nothing will be the same again.

Summer at Gaglow - Esther Freud
Summer at Gaglow - Esther Freud. There was a large, leather-topped desk in the centre of the room, on which lay a book of paper, ragged at the edges like raw silk, and so heavy it was hardly worth the effort it took to close it. Stone-edged windows looked out onto the flower garden, and each deep window-seat had a rug arranged on it, especially plumped and folded for Marianna’s dogs.
Sarah is already in her late twenties with an acting career in London and a baby on the way when she learns from her father about Gaglow, his family's grand East German country estate that was seized before the war. With the fall of the Berlin Wall, the estate will now come back to them.

Summer at Gaglow is her fine response to these doubters, even though a certain paintbrush-wielding pater is very much in evidence. The book opens in Germany in the summer of 1914, when the Great War's hostilities are still in the future. But at Gaglow, the Belgard family's summer estate, hostilities are rather more in evidence. In a brief, beautifully written chapter, Freud fills in the clan's jealousies, secrets, and subterfuges.
