Nobody remembers Anne now, but this elderly woman was an artistic pioneer in her youth, a creator of groundbreaking documentary photographs. Her beloved grandson Luke, now a captain with the Royal Western Fusiliers in the British army, has inherited her habit of transforming reality. When Luke's mission in Afghanistan goes horribly wrong, his vision of life is distorted and he is forced to see the world anew. Once Luke returns to Scotland, the secrets and lies that have shaped generations of his family begin to emerge as he and Anne set out to confront a mystery from her past among the Blackpool Illuminations-the dazzling artificial lights that brighten the seaside resort town as the season turns to winter., Blackpool (England), Digital content provided by hoopla., Downloadable audiobook., F OHAGA, Families, First American edition., Grandmothers, IG$A, Jackson, Gildart.|Narrator, MWT11353483, Midwesteengrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., Narrated by Gildart Jackson., New York :Farrar, Straus and Giroux,c2015., O'Hagan, Andrew,1968-author., O'Hagan, Andrew., OCLC Holdings Updated 20150824, Older women, Psychological fiction., Scotland, Soldiers, Streaming audiobook., The illuminations /Andrew O'Hagan., The illuminationsAndrew O'Hagan., Unabridged., Women photographers, YDXCPengrdaYDXCPBTCTABDXOCLCQUPZOCLCQTnLvILS, [United States] :Tantor Media, Inc. :Made available through hoopla,2015., audios, cafsaf03-18-15ma3, computerc, data file, digital, e-uk-ene-uk-st, hoopla digital., online resourcecr, othersz, qafea06-11-15mn-, spoken wordspw, texttxt, unmediatedn, volumenc
