"Poor, lovely Viola has been left penniless and alone after her late husband's demise, and is forced to live with his family in their joyless home. Its occupants are nearly insufferable: Mr. Withers is a tyrannical old miser; Mrs. Withers dismisses her as a common shop girl; and Viola's sisters-in-law, Madge and Tina, are too preoccupied with their own troubles to give her much thought. Only the prospect of the upcoming charity ball can lift her spirits-especially as Victor Spring, the local prince charming, will be there. But Victor's intentions towards the young widow are, in short, not quite honorable -- Cover verso

Ambientada en el turbulento y bombardeado Londres de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, Westwood narra la historia de Margaret Streggles, una joven de aires janeaustenianos, con un talento innato para pasarse el día en las nubes, un temperamento romántico y todo tipo de aspiraciones culturales.

Pero la existencia de Margaret cambia por completo cuando encuentra por casualidad una cartilla de racionamiento en Hampstead Heath y, con ella, todo un mundo de intelectuales, artistas y aristócratas, encarnados en la figura del pintor Alex Niland y de su suegro, el famoso e insolente dramaturgo Gerard Challis
