22 Reviews
Mrs Lippincote's house, with its mahogany furniture and yellowing photographs, stands as a reminder of all the certainties that have vanished with the advent of war. Temporarily, this is home for Julia, who has joined her husband Roddy at the behest of the RAF. Although she can accept the pomposities of service life, Julia's honesty and sense of humour prevent her from taking her role as seriously as her husband, that leader of men, might wish; for Roddy, merely love cannot suffice - he needs homage as well as admiration. And Julia, while she may be a most unsatisfactory officer's wife, is certainly no hypocrite.

User Review  - Michael - Goodreads

Another winner from Elizabeth Taylor. What a great discovery and I see that a bunch of lesser-known novels are now available for Kindle. This is a writer I ration (like Paul Auster) so I always have something to look forward to. Read full review
