I'm sure this is a well-written book but I found it very slow-moving and the print was rather small for me. Unfortunately I could not finish reading it, although I might try it again if I find another edition with bigger print. My parents loved the writing of Howard Spring but I notice that his novels have gone out of fashion in recent years.

HOWARD SPRING was an immensely popular and successful writer, who enjoyed a large following of readers from the 1940s to the 1960s; and though, since his death in 1965, he has become rather neglected, his books are still worth seeking out for their terrific storytelling and the quality of the writing.
