During summer games of hide and seek Harriet falls in love with Vesey and his elusive, teasing ways. When he goes to Oxford she cherishes his photograph and waits for the letter that never comes.

Years pass, and Harriet stifles her imaginings; with a husband and daughter, she excels at respectability. But then Vesey reappears and her marriage seems to melt away. Harriet is older, it is much too late, but she is still in love with him.

Just like most of Elizabeth Taylor?s characters Vesey and Harriet, teenagers when we are introduced to them, are a little flawed. But, that?s what makes them so like people you might know. This re-issue of the book?this year is the hundredth since her birth?follows Vesey and Harriet into middle age. It?s a book where little happens; it?s a book where everything happens.

I?ve read every novel and short story of hers I?ve been able to find. This other Elizabeth Taylor?s writing is like reading Jane Austen, had she written in the 1950s.
