Publisher Description

'The ghost of Katherine Mansfield hovers lightly over these deceptively delicate snapshots' Metro

A beguiling collection of short stories from award-winning author of Free Love, The Past and Late in the Day, Tessa Hadley.

Lottie announces at the breakfast table that she is getting married. The youngest daughter of a large and close-knit family, Lottie is nineteen but looks five years younger. Her fiancé is Edgar Lennox, a composer of religious music and lecturer at Lottie's university, forty-five years her senior.It is a story of romantic dreams and daily reality, family loyalties tested but holding, and the comedy and solace to be found in small moments. Evoking a world that expands beyond the pages, it marks the beginning of what is an astonishing collection to treasure.

'The most perceptive chronicler since George Eliot of avid, unworldly young women' Guardian
