A beautiful, very moving, melancholic and elegiac novel set in the late 1960s in Melton, a small town in the West Country.

The story revolves around a disparate group of people who come together there to establish an arts festival. There is Jack Curtis a self-made millionaire who has bought and refurbished the local stately home, Florence Plover, a garden designer in her sixties whom he has employed and her Anglo-Greek niece, Persephone. There are the Musgrove siblings, Thomas and Mary, whose family originally owned Melton Hall, who run a failing garden nursery nearby and there is Francis Brock, whose sister Celia, Thomas's wife, was tragically killed in a car crash some years previously.

This is the story of their intertwining relationships and how they come to love, and not to love each other in different ways and why - a perfect book to curl up and read by the fireside on an autumn afternoon and as satisfying a read as Brief Encounter is a film.

    " A very enjoyable read - but the story didn't really 'go anywhere'. I enjoyed it while I was reading it but didn't take anything away...A bit disappointing. "

    " I love Elizabeth Jane Howard's writing. A quarter into the book I discovered I was listening to an abridged version which was disappointing, but Joanna Lumley's excellent reading made up for that. I liked all the characters and really wanted them to be happy but I guess life is not always like that. "

    " Nice book, pretty depressing ending "

    " 'Not quite as good as The Cazalet Chronicles, but Howard remains (in her 80s!) a very shrewd observer. 'Liked her literary references (Austen, Gaskell) and the interwoven stories (although Mary the martyr was a tad annoying). Really well done. "
