A wonderful coming of age novel among the aristocracy and fox hunting.
Prudence , at nineteen is reckless, laughing and wild to the despair of her elderly guardians.
Her best friend the female Peter have great fun riding to hounds and their beloved dogs.
Told with humour and wit.
I loved it.

I read this author because she is written about by Diana Athill in her book Stet and I had never read any of her works before. Just a lovely story - character sketch- of the Upper Class Anglo-Irish. Fun characters with lots of stories of hounds and the hunt.
