About this item
1st edition second impression M.J Farrell (a.k.a. Molly Keane) published her third novel in 1932. She write about Irish society and produces what have been described as "perfect gems of portraiture". There is Willow, pale as a candle with her plaited hair like a thin gold cap on her head and a light burning within her, so small and still that one may never see even the edge of its flame... her brother Dick with his seventeenth century books, his manners and speech a simplicity of delight, his thoughts his own alone, his actions unpredictable, and Sir Richard buying and selling horses and his disarming charm.

Inscribed with owner's name. Free end paper s front and back slightly foxed. Illustrated dust jacket bright but small section missing to top of spine, edges bumped and small tears to edges.
