As the solitary child of mild and gentle parents, Jane is fascinated and astounded by her exotically European aunt, Dolly.

Dolly's ways are certainly not her parents' ways, yet she is an object of interest and dread to her beleaguered relatives. It is clear that they have nothing in common: Jane feels no affection for Dolly, and Dolly clearly dislikes children.

Yet the two are fated to go through life in uneasy harness, until such time as their alliance is accepted by both as not only inevitable, but as something of great value.

    " Brookner at her best. Jane dislikes, and is in turn disliked by, her aunt Dolly. Dolly--superficial, spoiled, selfish; Jane--solitary, undemanding, self-effacing. Yet life and need and loneliness drive them together throughout their lives. "
