Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

Another of Mary Wesley's witty, stylish comedies of romantic love, read by Anna Massey

Flora Trevelyan is a ten-year-old misfit, despised by her selfish and
indolent parents, and left to wander the streets of a small French town
whilst her parents prepare to depart for life in colonial India. There she
befriends the locals, acquires an extensive vocabulary of French foul
language and encounters the privileged lifestyle of the elegant middle-class
British families holidaying in 1920s France. Introduced for the first time
to kindly, civilised and, above all caring people, Flora falls helplessly
and hopelessly in love with not one but three young men.

Over the next forty years Flora will grow from an awkward schoolgirl into a
stunning beauty and explore, consummate and finally resolve each of these
