Virago Modern Classics, Fiction, Classic fiction (pre c 1945)

*One of Rosamond Lehmann's most acclaimed novels

* A widely acclaimed novel by one of Virago Modern Classic's bestselling and best-loved classic novelists

Two sisters: Madeleine and Dinah. One husband: Rickie Masters. For many

years now, Dinah, exotic and sensual, has conducted a clandestine affair with

Rickie. Madeleine, calm and resolute, has accepted that her marriage has been of limited success. Rickie's sudden death makes widows of both sisters in this highly imaginative novel that explores with extraordinary insight the sublimity, the rivalry and the pain of personal relationships.

'She makes a mood, an atmosphere, which is never forgotten . . . The inner voice of women talking to themselves about their love affairs, knowing that it is hopeless, having to go ahead anyway, expecting the end as soon as it begins. That, of course, is what Rosamond Lehmann does best' Sunday Times
