Product Description:

Kate is bored of being overlooked by her grown-up children and, escaping on an Aegean cruise, ends up in Keritha - a mysterious Greek island all but forgotten by the modern world. There she encounters her childhood friends, the Challoners, returned to the island of their birth to claim their heritage. Some years later, another stray arrives: the unattractive, foolish Selwyn Potter, who in turn discovers Kate. Under the spell of this strange island, the visitors make some unexpected discoveries.

Review:

"An imaginative tale, symbolic and haunting and yet at times wryly humorous" ( Kirkus Reviews)

"Margaret Kennedy caught just the taste of the time, mixing a stolid domestic Englishness with 'Continental' bohemians" ( Irish Times)

"She is not only a romantic but an anarchist, and she knows the ways of men and women very well indeed" (Anita Brookner)

"Kennedy was immensely popular in her heyday" ( Washington Post)
