When Oliver visits lovely ramshackle Pullinstown, he gets swept up in wild days of fox hunting, fishing, and racing by his fearless young cousins Willow and Dick, whose profound closeness is matched only by their passion for horses and trickery. Their elegant, crafty father, Sir Richard, jousts with them both and with the redoubtable, sprightly Lady Honour, his old adversary and love. In this early novel by Molly Keane, the high romance and disarray of the vanished Anglo-Irish world is evoked with humor, nostalgia, and undercurrents of powerful feeling.

Not for me---way too horsey. An early novel, this one lacks the weirdness and darkness I love in every other novel I've read by her. Read full review

Too many descriptions of hunts and races for me. All the other parts of the book are marvelous. It is much horsier than any of her other books I think. Read full review
