Very light spine creases, faint edgewear, a few smudges on page edges. A very nice copy.; The author's final novel. "Apparently 'a fairly ordinary tale about the destruction of a happy marriage' (Nina Bawden in the Preface) yet 'it makes compulsive reading' in its description of an ordinary family ('Ellen was that unfashionable creature, a happy housewife') struck by disaster when the husband, in a moment of weak, mid-life vanity, runs off with a French girl. Dorothy Whipple is a superb stylist, with a calm intelligence in the tradition of Mrs Gaskell (both wrote in the Midlands and had similar preoccupations)."; 'Any novel by Dorothy Whipple is guaranteed to be an absorbing story of family relationships, romance & heartache... Dorothy Whipple is one of my favourite authors'.- Lyn B., author of the 'I Prefer Reading' blog and member of the DE Stevenson email discussion group. Also recommended and reviewed by Scott, owner of the "Furrowed Middlebrow" blog. Image is actual copy on offer.
