Hutchinson, 1989. First edition. Hardcover. Very fine, very clean throughout, in a very fine dustwrapper. Nice copy of the hardest of the author's novels to find.
A beautifully controlled and powerful story of love and conscience, will and desire which begins when a mysterious young girl arrives to take up the post at the seedy Hotel du Lion D'Or in a small French town in the mid-1930s.
