9780099589747: The Constant Nymph

1925. Margaret Kennedy tells the story of a teenaged girl who falls in love with a family friend who eventually marries her cousin. The two girls show mutual jealousy over their common love for the man. The book begins: At the time of his death the name of Albert Sanger was barely known to the musical public of Great Britain. Among the very few who had heard of him there were even some who called him Sanje, in the French manner, being disinclined to suppose that great men are occasionally born in Hammersmith.

From the Publisher:

Tessa is the daughter of a brilliant bohemian composer, Albert Sanger, who with his "circus" of precocious children, slovenly mistress, and assortment of hangers-on, lives in a rambling chalet high in the Austrian Alps. "Unbalanced, untaught, and fatally warm-hearted," the fourteen-year-old Tessa has fallen in love with Lewis Dodd, a gifted composer like her father. Confidently, she awaits maturity (and Lewis). For even his marriage to Tessa's beautiful cousin Florence cannot shatter the loving bond between Lewis and his constant nymph.

About the Author:

Margaret Kennedy (1896-1967) was born in London, the eldest of four children and educated at Cheltenham Ladies College and Oxford. THE CONSTANT NYMPH was first published in 1924.
