"Poor, lovely Viola has been left penniless and alone after her late husband's demise, and is forced to live with his family in their joyless home. Its occupants are nearly insufferable: Mr. Withers is a tyrannical old miser; Mrs. Withers dismisses her as a common shop girl; and Viola's sisters-in-law, Madge and Tina, are too preoccupied with their own troubles to give her much thought. Only the prospect of the upcoming charity ball can lift her spirits-especially as Victor Spring, the local prince charming, will be there. But Victor's intentions towards the young widow are, in short, not quite honorable -- Cover verso.

A fantastic, and long out of print book by the author of "Cold Comfort Farm". A wonderful re-imagining of Cinderella, and a treat for fans of "Downton Abbey"!

I enjoyed it so much and look forward to reading it again. Made me think of Enchanted April. Subtle but magical.

A real pleasure to read. Beautifully and wittily written with clever understanding of characters in a somewhat unreal, or a cloistered world. (It's the 1930s - only hints of whats brewing internationally)
A kind of Cinderella story where miserable lives are transformed and it's all very satisfying!
