Description

Life had been distinctly lacking in possibilities - until The Visit.

But, ever afterwards, just remembering the smell of the Lancings' house would enrapture her, taking her back to that very first day when Lucy and Gerald had picked her up from the station ...All the longing, excitement and poignant comedy of adolescence are captured in Elizabeth Jane Howard's first novel about a young girl growing up in the years around the First World War. 'Interesting and original ...Howard has true imagination and a kind of sensuous power.

She creates a wonderful atmosphere of uneasiness and oppression; she can also draw scenes with ironic brilliance: hers seems to me to be a remarkable talent' Antonia White, New Statesman
