Airplanes thunder overhead- a battery of guns opens up. When a stick of bombs falls she cowers, then takes to her heels in flight. She is rescued from this nightmare by a gaunt stranger, frail and older than his years, and, guiding her up his front stairs, he offers her the protection of his house.Given this respite from the bleakness of having no home and no family to turn to, Juno first encounters tragedy, then a series of events which take her to a house in the West Country and the blossoming of an English spring into which war only occasionally intrudes.

Here she may find peace- here she will no longer be part of the furniture. Part of the Furniture completes the triptych of wartime novels begun with The Camomile Lawn and A Sensible Life. From the Trade Paperback edition.
