Sweet Caress by William Boyd
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This interesting novel tells the life story of Amory Clay, born into Edwardian England, whose life as a photographer takes her to Paris, New York, the war in Europe, and the war in Vietnam. In between she escapes to her island off the coast of Scotland where she keeps a diary of her experiences. Amory, deliberately given a male name by her father, is determined, free-thinking, and lives by her own rules.
Although it's fiction, William Boyd has created a vibrant person and casts her against a background of interesting times.
