Olivia Curtis wakes to her seventeenth birthday and her presents: a roll of flame-coloured silk for her first evening dress, a diary for her innermost thoughts, a china ornament, and a ten shilling note. Safe within the bosom of a family at once lovingly familiar yet curiously remote, she stands poised on the brink of womanhood, anticipating her first dance with tremulous uncertainty and excitement - the greatest, yet most terrifying, event in her restricted social life.

For her pretty, poised elder sister, Kate, the dance will be a triumph, but for Olivia, shy and awkward, what will it be?

    " I have a first-print edition of this book - a fast read & cute story that reminded me a lot of I Capture the Castle & Brideshead Revisited, for era and feeling. "

    " Thought this was good -- sensitive, very readable style. Was impressed by the evocation of Olivia's moods and vulnerability. "

    " Hated it - found it boring and was not interested in the two girls at all "

    " I really enjoyed this book published in 1932. Sounds like a hideous romance novel, but is actually a very simple story about a girl turning 17 and attending her first dance. The prose is very beautiful, and I will definitely add the sequel to my tbr pile. "
