About the Book

Not everything is as it seems. No-one was more aware of this than Simon Fielden--unscrupulous art-dealer--in his personal and professional life. But nothing prepared him for the discoveries he made researching the abandoned French farmhouse he had bought as an escape from the pressures of London life and his own demons. Tracing its story from its origins in the eighteenth century through the years of the German Occupation, Simon’s maison de reve became, through a terrible error of judgement, a place from which he and his wife, Becky, had to flee. A study in ambiguity, ‘Pieces of Identity’ accompanies Simon on his journey of self-discovery where, even in his new life, not everything, as he found to his cost, was as it seemed.
