About the book:

In 1939 the influential architect Berthold Lubetkin abruptly left his thriving career in London and dropped out of sight, moving with his wife to a desolate farm in rural Gloucestershire. Life in the house the Lubetkins named Worlds End was far from idyllic for their three children. Louise Kehoe and her siblings lived in an atmosphere of oppressive isolation, while their tyrannical fatherat times charming and witty but usually a terrorist in a
self-styled Stalinist hellbadgered and belittled them during his fits of self-loathing. Even his true identity remained an enigma. That secret was never divulged during her fathers lifetime, but Louises quest to unearth its tragic originsher relentless piecing together of the clues she found after his deathis a remarkable story, written with extraordinary grace, style, and imagination, of an identity and a heritage lost and found.
