As much as I TOTALLY REFUSE to admit that this anything other than Bryony’s latest lie, I have to admit that she has an amazing eye for dramatic symmetry. This kills me every time.
(If you read my blog post on how I came up with the upcoming FIREBIRD trilogy, you know that the movie “Atonement” played a part in my thinking it up. Now that I’m finally writing it, expect to see yet more “Atonement” posts. Yes. There will be more. Brace yourselves.)
I never made that journey to Balham. So the scene in which I confess to them is invented, imagined. And, in fact, could never have happened… .because Robbie Turner died of septicaemia at Bray Dunes on the first of June 1940, the last day of the evacuation…and I was never able to put things right with my sister Cecilia….because she was killed on the 15th of October, 1940 by the bomb that destroyed the gas and water mains above Balham tube station. Atonement (2007)
