Book DescriptionA sweeping, heartbreaking novel following Daniel in his troubled marriage with Rosie as they navigate the unsettled time between the World Wars. Rosie and Daniel have moved to Ceylon with their little daughter to start a new life at the dawn of the 1920s, attempting to put the trauma of the First World War behind them, and to rekindle a marriage that gets colder every day. However, even in the lush plantation hills it is hard for them to escape the ties of home and the yearning for fulfilment that threatens their marriage. Back in England, Rosie's three sisters are dealing with different challenges in their searches for family, purpose and happiness. These are precarious times, and they find themselves using unconventional means to achieve their desires. Around them the world is changing, and when Daniel finds himself in Germany he witnesses events taking a dark and forbidding turn. By turns humorous and tragic, gripping and touching, So Much Life Left Over follows a cast of unique and captivating characters as they navigate the extraordinary interwar years both in England and abroad.
Editorial ReviewDe Bernieres is a singular, cherishable voice * Mail on Sunday * "Richly enjoyable...Written with such vitality...many readers will read it straight through forgetting whatever it was they should have been doing instead of reading" * Scotsman * "This tragicomic romp has a winning glint in its eye, delivering oodles of. Downton-esque entertainment as it portrays a changing Britain poised uneasily on the brink of modernity." * Mail on Sunday * "A breathless, often heart-tugging tale of love, loss, guilt and regret" * Sunday Express * "This book made me laugh, made me mad, made me cry" -- Rose Shepherd * Saga * "`[de Bernieres] balances humour and tragedy in a novel that succeeds largely because Daniel is such a compelling and sympathetic character" -- Vanessa Berridge * Daily Express * "de Bernieres achieves a kaleidoscope effect in his narrative... So Much Life Left Over is an immersive pleasure" -- Russell Leadbetter * Herald *
