Between the world wars, 8-year-old Margaret Marsh is caught in the backwash of a fervently religious father and a mother bitterly nostalgic for what might have been. With her parents kept busy with a new baby, Margaret takes eye-opening daily walks in the English countryside with her family's bawdy maid, Lydia, even as her world hurtles toward a shattering moment of truth. A Booker Prize finalist, Jane Gardam's 1978 novel established her as a master, nearly 15 years before she began her Old Filth Trilogy. "Gardam orchestrates the subtle evolution of character and plot with Olympian omniscience and wry humor."—Boston Globe
