Ignorance : a novel by Michèle Roberts( Book )

16 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 986 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In every war there are stories that do not surface. You can try to forget, but sometimes the past can return: in the scent of a bar of soap, in whispers darting through a village after mass, in the color of an undelivered letter. Jeanne Nerin and Marie-Angèle Baudry grow up side by side in the Catholic village of Ste. Madeleine, but their worlds could not be more different. Marie-Angèle is the grocer's daughter, inflated with ideas of her own piety and rightful place in society. Jeanne's mother washes clothes for a living. She used to be a Jew until this became too dangerous. Jeanne does not think twice about stealing food when she is hungry, nor about grasping the slender chances life throws at her. Marie-Angèle does not grasp; she aspires to a life of comfort and influence. When war falls out of the sky, the forces that divide the two girls threaten to overwhelm those that bind them together. In this dizzying new order, the truth can be buried under a pyramid of recriminations"--Publisher's web site

In an old farmhouse nestled in the rolling, haunted landscape of Normandy, two young cousins, one French, one half-English, grow up surrounded by mysteries. One side of their lives, the innocent one, is filled with love and comforts, the rich, fragrant tastes and smells of the Norman countryside, the nurturing joys of girlish friendship. The other side is dark, intense, and disturbing: a realm of sexual tension, mystic visions, and family guilt that conceals a dark village secret, dating from the German occupation during World War II, whose revelation will bring the cousins painfully together again after a separation of twenty years
