The bookshop ; The gate of angels ; The blue flower by Penelope Fitzgerald( Book )
7 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Publisher's description: The Bookshop is a postwar tragicomedy of manners, set in an isolated seaside town where an enterprising woman opens a bookstore only to find it beset by poltergeists, weather, and hostile townsfolk. The Gate of Angels is an Edwardian romance within a novel of ideas: a young doctor devoted to science and to his all-male Cambridge college finds his life and views disrupted by a nurse named Daisy. The Blue Flower, which won the National Book Critics Circle Award, revitalizes historical drama through the story of Novalis, an eighteenth-century German romantic poet and visionary genius, and his unlikely love affair with a simple child-woman. These three novels all display Fitzgerald₂s characteristic wit, intellectual breadth, and narrative brilliance, applied to an array of traditional forms into which she breathed new life

In The Beginning of Spring, a struggling English printer living in Moscow in 1913 is abandoned by his wife and left alone to care for his three young children in the face of the impending revolution."--BOOK JACKET
