This copy has been signed and dedicated by Flora Robson to the ffep, dated December 1938. There is also a newspaper clipping of Flora loosely inserted to the same page.

Set in 1930s France, Margery Sharp’s witty, warm-hearted novel tells the story of a free-spirited mother who is reunited with her very proper daughter after sixteen years, when her daughter asks her to inspect her fiancé.


A reading copy but nice with Flora Robson's signature. The cloth binding is faded to the spine and rubbed and bumped to all edges. The silver titling is fading. However, the contents are in good condition, with clean pages and secure binding and in strong readable condition. The newspaper clipping has offset against the page and has left some heavy browning.
