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.
