In each book Warner created a different world, exploring social ideas as deftly as she created memorable characters. In Lolly Willowes, published in 1926, the heroine escapes two alternatives she dreads - conventional marriage and conventional spinsterhood - by arriving at an understanding with Satan. Mr. Fortune's Maggot tells of a missionary who arrives on a South Sea Island, armed with a sewing machine to make clothes for his flock, and succeeds in making only a tentative convert. France and the Revolution of 1848 are the backdrop for Summer Will Show. And in the Corner that Held Them, Warner describes the everyday life of a fourteenth-century convent, where the nuns are as concerned with the material life as with the spiritual life.
