It is 1910 and to ten-year-old Oskar Grunewald, the Melville family is impossibly, incomprehensibly glamorous. Born into privilege, buttressed by inherited wealth, their certainties are as unshakeable as the walls of their Victorian castle. It is a world to which Oskar, mathematics prodigy and son of a penniless German composer, has no wish to belong. His fascination is all for physics where new scientific discoveries are, for the first time in four hundred years, challenging Newtonas fundamental theories of the universe. But when Theo Melville is killed in the Great War, shattering his familyas lives, Oskar finds himself drawn reluctantly into the gaping hole his death has left behind. As Theoas two sisters struggle to forge their paths in a world that no longer plays by the old rules, Oskaras life becomes entwined with theirs in ways that will change all of their futures forever.It is 1910 and to ten-year-old Oskar Grunewald, the Melville family is impossibly, incomprehensibly glamorous.
