    Noel Coward
  • She had an economy of phrase, and an unparalleled talent for evoking hot summer days in the English countryside

    Noel Streatfield
  • A charming and brilliantly entertaining novel... shot through with the light-hearted Nesbit touch

    Penelope Lively, from the introduction
  • To come upon any Nesbit today, hitherto unread, ...is like receiving a letter from a friend whom you have believed dead

    New York Times
  • A wry, charming delight of a book
