'The older we get the less certain we become. That’s what I feel anyhow. That is why we sometimes feel the need to invent. To take away the doubt. But when I was your age, I was so confident, full of hope about where I was going and what I was going to do. Now the season fades somewhat, But this is not your fault my dear. Don’t feel disillusioned, doubts will come later.'
Set in one of the last great villas on the French Riviera, in cosmopolitan London, and in the home of a landed German family within the shadow of the wall, Sad Confetti is a heart-felt tale of mature and immature love.
A small group of people come together by chance, link, hold, and finally break away. The elegant well-born English hosts, the fabulous Betty and husband, army-mad military historian Archie. Both ageing, aware, alone, vulnerable, dissatisfied.
The young visitors Liza, a cabaret crooner, trying to distance herself away from her German heritage; and Lee, who had worked as a model for publications of a dubious nature. Both desperately in love, both eagerly exploring, both drifting their way together.
But there are secrets. There are always secrets.
All are caught up in the potent chemistry of their meeting as the mid-summer picnic ends, leaves fall, the yacht sails away and the garden voices fade.
