Fine book in fine dust jacket.
Set in Yorkshire in 1952 as the inhabitants of the area set about celebrating the accession of a new Queen, this is the tale of a brilliant and eccentric family fatefully divided.
The Virgin in the Garden is a wonderfully entertaining novel, in which enlightenment and sexuality, Elizabethan drama and comedy intersect richly and unpredictably. It is the first novel to feature Frederica Potter, and the beginning of a triumphant quartet of novels.
