Swiss SonataBook - 2005
Swiss Sonata is the first novel by Gwethalyn Graham, written when she was just 25. The novel is set in a girls' boarding school in Switzerland in 1936. What makes this novel extraordinary is not just the penetrating insights into the behaviour of the girls -- echoed later in novels such as The Wives of Bath -- but for her timely insights into the dark clouds of war and hatred gathering over all of Europe at the time.
