'An extraordinary good book, penetrating and beautiful. All its characters are very real and alive, and William himself is a masterpiece.' May Sinclair.

This novel (which has an interesting introduction by John Bayley, where he likens Barbara Pym's writing to that of E.M. Young's) is a subtle, exquisitely written story of family life, of the interactions between its various members, and of how the behaviour of one family member can affect others in the family and encourage some of them to look more deeply at their own lives. It is true, that this is a quiet and mostly a leisurely-paced story, so for those who enjoy pacy, plot-driven novels, this may not satisfy; however, I enjoyed this story from the first page to the last and am now very much looking forward to reading and reviewing the other novels ('Miss Mole';'The Vicar's Daughter';'Chatterton Square';'Celia' and 'The Curate's Wife') that I have from this author on my bookshelves.
