Nophoto-f-25x33 This was a good light read. Jane Gardam mercilessly skewers the British upper class yet again as she peels back the layers of customary politeness and reveals snobbery and selfishness beneath. The story revolves around the birth of a baby whose mother dies in childbirth who is passed from hand to hand as no-one in her family wishes to take care of her. She is delivered to her uncle, a charismatic priest who runs a delapidated and failing Priory where he is so invovled in what he sees as his Chrisitian ministry that he fails to appreciate what is going on for the cast of characters who live or visit the Priory. Also much to say about the big divide between "oop north" and the wealthier Southern counties in UK
