An old lady sits on the terrace of her Mediterranean villa recounting the story of her life and loves to two rapt listeners – her grandson and his lover. It is a life built on fraud and deception; her listeners know this yet they love her in spite of it.
The dramatic events that comprise her tale are shaped by the cataclysm of the First World War, touch on the court of Imperial Russia and overflow into the opulent Capri of the 1990s. Her story transforms the lives of the listening pair for ever.
Echoes of Deception is a moving story of love, betrayal and hidden mysteries.
