Mirror of a Dead Lady

£29.99

Product description

Published by Longmans Green & Co., 1940.
Red Cloth Black Titles.
Book Condition: Good. No Jacket.
333pp.
Corners show minor bumping.
Bottom edges of boards slightly frayed in places.
A few signs of foxing.

The novel details the brief life of Sylvia Dundas.
She knew in childhood that she and her sister were illegitimate and she allowed destiny to take its way with her, with no protest, no rebellion.

She travels to Chile, while her sister, sure of her own higher destiny, stays in France.

Scenes of pre-war interest in Paris, in London, in Chile form the background for Sylvia's toleration of the misbehaviour of others, - her indifferent mother, her clannish aristocratic Chilean relations, who shunted her from one to another, her husband, who loved her until the death of their son, failure of his plan and wrecking of his business.
