Description
Information
Nadine has always wanted her daughter Maud to be married and off her hands. When the two women are staying at Nadine's sister's house near Meaux, they become part of a sophisticated group into which neither Maud nor Edward Harrison, a young visitor from England, seems to fit. Maud is swept off her feet by stylish, irresponsible David Tyler, who robs her of her innocence. Edward, forced into adulthood - and a career - by his inheritance of a bookshop, takes Maud into his care. But for both of them the shadow of Tyler is always there, illuminating their feelings of inadequacy, disappointment and loss.
'A tense exploration of sexual passion and its effects... beautifully structured... She is funny, vivid and devastating in her observations.'
Helen Dunmore, Observer
