Description

About the Book

Thomas Maggs, the son of the local publican, lives with his parents and sister in a village on the Suffolk coast in 1914. He is the youngest child, and the only son surviving.Life is quiet - shaped by the seasons, fishing and farming and the summer visitors.Then one day a mysterious Scotsman arrives. To Thomas he looks for all the world likea detective, in his black cape and hat of felted wool, and the way he puffs on his pipe asif he's Sherlock Holmes. Mac is what the locals call him when they whisper about him inthe inn. And whisper they do, for he sets off on his walks at unlikely hours, and stops toexamine the humblest flowers. He is seen on the beach, staring out across the wavesas if he's searching for clues. But Mac isn't a detective, he's the architect CharlesRennie Mackintosh, and together with his red-haired artist wife, they soon become asource of fascination and wonder to Thomas.Yet just as Thomas and Mac's friendship begins to blossom, war with Germany isdeclared. The summer guests flee and are replaced by regiments of soldiers on theirway to Belgium, and as the brutality of war weighs increasingly heavily on this coastal community, they become more suspicious of Mac and his curious behaviour..In this tender and compelling story of an unlikely friendship, Esther Freud paints a vividportrait of a home front community during the First World War, and of a man who wasone of the most brilliant and misunderstood artists of his generation.
