Best-selling classic. In print since 1921.

Lucy Entwhistle's beloved father has just died; aged 22 she finds herself alone in the world. Leaning against her garden gate, dazed and unhappy, she is disturbed by the sudden appearance of the perspiring Mr Wemyss. This middle-aged man is also in mourning - for his wife Vera, who has died in mysterious circumstances. Before Lucy can collect herself, Mr Wemyss has taken charge: of the funeral arrangements, of her kind aunt Dot, but most of all of Lucy herself - body and soul.

Elizabeth von Arnim's masterpiece is a forceful study of the power of men in marriage, and the weakness of women when they love. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erica | 12/8/2013

    " Not as light as her other novels, but witty as always, and probably a satirical depiction of her unhappy relationship with her husband... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 10/11/2013

    " This is little gem. A subtle black comedy/psychological study, it deals with the same situation as DuMaurier's Rebecca, but first and better. "

    " What an eerie atmosphere "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 10/12/2012

    " It's very surprising. And didn't end at all how I thought it would, but it definitely made me think. Overall, I liked it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hollie | 7/2/2012

    " I wanted to stranger that blasted guy, Wemyss. Did not even care for how this book ended either. Now for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel K | 6/26/2012

    " It is easy to see why poor Vera defenestrated herself. However, it would have been better for all concerned if she had just killed Wemyss. Good lord. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 12/9/2011

    " As depressing as this book is, there's something so comforting in Von Arnim's clear, sweet authorial voice. She writes with such poignant simplicity, the truth just rings out. I adore her. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meryl Natchez | 2/3/2010

    " The story of a Victorian romance with interesting twists. This novel was scandalous in it's time, I guess because it is a realistic treatment of a certain kind of bullying man and treats sex in a straightforward way. Nothing scandalous now, but worth reading. "
