Bessie Bawtry earns a Cambridge scholarship in order to escape her small Yorkshire town. Ambitious and eager for a new life, she struggles to free herself from the family she left behind. Nearly a century later, her granddaughter, Faro, journeys to Yorkshire seeking answers to the same questions Bessie faced. What power do we have to reinvent ourselves? Do family and tradition binds us to a destiny beyond our will? Abounding with lively characters and subversive wit, this is Margaret Drabble at her best. "This book fairly bounces. Its zest derives in large part from the perfectly sustained tone, which expresses humor without poking fun, and deep regret without sentimentality." - The Atlantic Monthly
(Key Words: Fiction, Margaret Drabble).
