A later novel from Elizabeth Jenkins
First edition, first printing hardback in dustwrapper. 20.5 × 13cm, 224pp.
A novel on the effects of different kinds of parental love. Widowed Una Lambert has raised her son, Richard, with wisdom, love and a sense of responsibility. Her neighbours, the Sugdens, have given their spoiled son, Derek, everything—even an Italian racing car—except values. Driving too fast, Derek kills Richard. This stunning tragedy forces the survivors into a different knowledge of love and personal relationships.
A good reading copy. The dustwrapper is foxed and has ring marks to the back cover. The book is foxed to the page edges. However, the book is in strong readable condition.
