From the Back Cover
Harriet is the middle child of a celebrated theatrical company, all of whom continue to live a comfortable if eccentric existence in the patriarchal home. When her father is accused of murder - fracturing his rival's skull on stage - and kept in jail, the family are forced to find other means for supporting their way of life.
Harriet, struggling with a new job, her father's mistresses and an unlikely fairy godfather, begins a journey of personal education during which she learns that villains may smile and heroes be cunningly disguised.
'Social comedy is a difficult thing to do, but Clayton shows herself an adept practitioner.' The Times
Witty and perceptive, with an outstanding cast of characters, wonderful scenes and outrageous theatrical behaviour, Clouds Among the Stars is a book to relish and re-read.
