"With this novel Margery Sharp surpasses her own record for warmhearted, entertaining stories. She has used her light touch, her gentle wisdom about human nature, not in a comedy but in a sympathetic chronicle of a life spanning three generations. Here is a book in which the reader can lose himself, a book about people who will take their places among the living in literature...Britannia Mews had housed the horses and coachmen of Adelaide's family and their set in 1875...As her story unfolds it becomes the richly varied account not only of an exceptional woman, but of an English family over three quarters of a century - an account that ends only after the buzz-bombs have spend their fury over England." - publisher.
