Maria, born in a Cornish vicarage when Victoria s empire seemed eternal and an unalterable social order was symbolized by the manor on the hill Louisa, whose first and secret love led her at last to the manor and disaster Augusta, vain, unlucky and irresistible, who followed only and always her heart and her fancy.

Howard Spring is a wonderful author, comparable to the likes of RF Delderfield, Diane Pearson and Margaret Kennedy. His writing awes me yet leaves me feeling somewhat subdued and in need of hot chocolate to cheer me up.The thing is, he writes so REAL. And sometimes (ok, most times) I want an escape from real. Or at least a sugar coated real. Or at least an improbable and impossibly unrealistic but happy ending. I'm weird like that.Being that this is a very long book, covering the life of one spi [...]
Too often, when I pick up a past favourite book, I find it has lost the magic for me; I have grown and changed, and the book has not.

Page by page, Howard Spring can write well: the characters spring out, the Manchester and Cornish locations are efficiently invoked. But for a whole book the central character's passivity in seeing people come into and out of her life is just frustrating. It's like real life, no doubt, to be attached to people and then, decades later, to be attached to others, and perhaps that's the point of this epic. For a novel it's disappointing. I didn't care after a bit.
I didn't want this book to ever end! It's one of those books that as soon as you are finished reading - you want to start all over again! Thank you Howard Spring!
