Set during the interwar period of the twentieth century in England. Olivia Curtis wakes to her seventeenth birthday ; her presents: a roll of flame-coloured silk for her first evening dress ; a diary for her inmost thoughts ; a china ornament ; a ten shilling note. Safe, still, within the bosom of a family at once lovingly familiar yet curiously remote, she stands poised on the brink of womanhood ; anticipating her first dance with tremulous uncertainty and excitement -- the greatest, yet most terrifying event in her restricted social life. For her pretty, poised elder sister Kate, the dance will be a triumph, but for Olivia, shy and awkward, what will it be?

The gipsy's baby, and other stories by Rosamond Lehmann( Book )

This collection of stories by one of Britain s most beloved novelists depicts domestic life during World War II as seen through the eyes of both children and adults. In The Red-haired Miss Daintreys, four six-foot-tall sisters capture the imagination of young Rebecca when she and her family are on holiday. Beautifully crafted and informed by Lehmann's eye for telling detail, it is a moving meditation on familial ties, romantic love, and the end of an era. In When the Waters Came and A Dream of Winter, both the deprivations of war and a swarm of bees take their toll on the inhabitants of a small English village afflicting one family in particular. Wonderful Holidays is the tale of a divorced woman who cares for two children while a wounded veteran of World War I longs for his absent wife. And the title story is an exploration of the unlikely friendship between two families one privileged, one poor and the tragedy that ensues when a band of gypsies sets up camp on the outskirts of town. These five stories will sweep readers into a world where grieving is a necessary part of the human condition and love can flourish in the most unexpected places. Morality, the class system, the grim realities of war, love and loss Lehmann's trademark themes are on vivid display in this remarkable collection
