It is 1946 and the people of France and England are facing the
aftermath of the war. Banished by her beautiful, indolent mother to
England, Barbary Deniston is thrown into the care of her
distinguished father and conventional stepmother. Having grown up
in the sunshine of Provence, allowed to run wild with the Maquis,
experienced collaboration, betrayal and death, Barbary finds it
hard to adjust to the drab austerity of postwar London life.
Confused and unhappy, she discovers one day the flowering wastes
around St Paul's. Here, in the bombed heart of London, she finds an
echo of the wilderness of Provence and is forced to confront the
wilderness within herself.
