With growing unease, she questions his account of what really happened in Kenya.A different story – of love and adultery – written by Eve’s mother, comes to light after her death. The two young sisters recount fragments of their time in Africa- their naive voices break into the adult deceptions.White Lies is about different kinds of war and different kinds of loving. It explores the fragility and partiality of memory and our need to re-write the past so that it does not jar with the stories we tell ourselves and others.Reviews for White Lies by Lynn Michell‘An anatomist of the human heart.’Wanda Whitely, HarperCollins‘Gripping… with a bombshell of an ending.’Michele Hanson, The Guardian
