A story of adolescent love in London during the 1930's.'Shortly after sixteen-year-old Portia comes to stay with her cool, elegant relations in their house in Windsor Terrace, she meets Eddie, an attractive young philanderer, and falls in love.'
; Light spine and cover creases, pages pale brown, edges a bit darker; pages clean, none loose.; This title reviewed and recommened by Ali, author of the 'HeavenAli'
blog. 'Elizabeth Bowen is absolutely brilliant at completely capturing the world that she is writing about. Laced with secrets and adolescent awkwardness, the bitterness of teenage betrayal, "The Death of the Heart" is an exquisitely written novel. When I look back over this novel, I think of fur coats and London fog, tea by the fire, the sudden ringing of telephones and the desolate sound of heels on an empty hall floor.'
