Product Description:

Brother and sister, Constance and Kenneth Fielding live in calm respectability, just out of reach of London and the Blitz. But when a series of uninvited guests converge upon them – from a Balkan exile to Ken’s old flame and the siblings’ own raffish father – the household struggles to preserve its precious peace. In this full house, in a quiet corner of suburbia, no one expects to find romance.

Review:

"[Gibbons has] a marvellous eye for the social scene - no-one is more accurate"

"Chipper is the word: Gibbons's heroines are plucky, determined and quietly hedonistic. But she can do melancholy with the best of them, too, not to mention melodrama" ( Guardian)

"Stella Gibbons an exception to that old canard: women can't make us laugh" ( Independent)

"The Jane Austen of the 20th century" (Lynne Truss)

"Stella is stellar" ( Sunday Herald)
