Both her parents died when she was young, and she was brought up by her grandmother.

With time on her hands between jobs she decides to find out more about her fathers death, which her grandmother has always surrounded in mystery. She finds no death certificate for Henry, her fathers name, but only one for Herman Falk—and no birth certificates for either. Betony confronts her grandmother with her findings, and the latter confesses that the boy she brought up was a German Jewish refugee baby, a substitute for her own stillborn Henry.

Her own sense of identity undermined, Betony sets out on a heartrending quest for the truth which takes her to Germany and into the past, only to discover that the more she finds out the less she knows who she is now. Spanning three centuries, Restitution traces a family that fled as Jacobites from England, and again as Jews from Germany, and asks what relevance nationality and the past have for a young woman at the end of the 20th century.
