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., FIC O'HAGAN, FICTION / Literary., FICTION / War & Military., Families, First American edition., Grandmothers, Jackson, Gildart,narrator., MWT11353483, Made available through hoopla, Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., New York :Farrar, Straus & Giroux,2015., NjBwBTengNjBwBTrdaNjBwBT, O'Hagan, Andrew, 1968-IlluminationsToronto : McClelland & Stewart, 2015, O'Hagan, Andrew,1968-author., Older women, PR6065.H18I44 2015, Psychological fiction., Read by Gildart Jackson., Scotland, Soldiers, The illuminations /Andrew O'Hagan., The illuminations :a novelAndrew O'Hagan., Unabridged., Women photographers, [United States]:Tantor Audio ,2015., bl2015005463, computerc, data file, digital, eAudiobook hoopla, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/ttm_9781494592240_180.jpeg, online resourcecr, spoken wordspw, text, unmediated, volume
