Description

Rose Aubrey is one of a family of four children. Their father, Piers, is the disgraced son of an Irish landowning family, a violent, noble, and quite unscrupulous leader of popular causes. His Scottish wife, Clare, is an artist, a tower of strength, fanatically devoted to a musical future for her daughters. This is the story of their life in south London, a life threatened by Piers's streak of tragic folly which keeps them on the verge of financial ruin and social disgrace....

An author who wrote in many genres, West reviewed books for The Times, the New York Herald Tribune, the Sunday Telegraph and the New Republic and she was a correspondent for The Bookman.
