Just needed to clear up the previous review. I read the book first when I was 12 and have read it every year since (more years than I care to count!) The father is a botanist in Tibet who only comes home every few years - hence the age difference between the five children. Joss, a young women who is beautiful 'just now', Cecil, a young woman who is lumped with her sister Joss in all family matters but finds herself being left behind, Hester who is younger than Cecil and the family peacemaker, Willmouse, the only boy in the family (and who wants to be a designer of womens high fashion clothes) and Vicky who is too young to be involved in the story much. Their mother is bit by a horsefly and is hospitalized at the beginning of their vacation to tour the 'battlefields of France'. They continue on alone to their hotel where they are involved in an episode of love, lust, murder and a world class thief.
