324 pages; Faintly bumped spine ends, one faint smudge on bottom page edges. Dust wrapper, unclipped, is faintly edgeworn and rubbed. A very nice copy indeed. ; 'In a fashionable London cemetery two families, visiting their respective graves on the day after Queen Victoria's death, teeter on the brink of a new era. The Colemans and the Waterhouses are divided by social class as well as taste. They would certainly not have become acquainted had not their two girls, meeting behind the tombstones, become best friends. As the girls grow up, the new king changes social customs, and a new, forward-thin king era takes wing. The lives and fortunes of the two families become more and more closely intertwined- neighbors in life as well as death. Against a gas-lit backdrop of social and political history, the author of "Girl with a Pearl Earring" explores the prejudices and flaws of a changing time.'
