Product Description

'An extraordinary work: it tells a story deftly, beautifully'Joyce Carol OatesSimon Camish is a successful yet diffident lawyer, beset by problems and too busy to take note of quiet Rose Vassiliou across a dinner party table. But only a few years before, Rose had frequently been in the news, an heiress who turned her back on family money in a battle for her own principles; now she is a single parent in a decaying house, trying to raise her three children while her ex-husband takes legal action against her. When Simon finds himself drawn into her affairs, he will uncover the brave idealism that Rose still carries within her.Margaret Drabble captures perfectly the alienation and moral difficulties that great wealth can bring, and the blessings of personal morality in a tangled world.
