Novel which tells of three characters, Rickie Masters, his wife Madeleine, and her sister Dinah. With extraordinary insight, Lehmann explores the sublimity and the pain of these fatally interrelated lives in a novel which carefully fictionalises the fracturing of the human personality under the pressure of irreconcilable emotional commitments.

She makes a mood, an atmosphere, which is only hers, and is never forgotten... the inner voice of women talking to themselves about their love affairs, knowing that its hopeless, having to go ahead anyway, expecting the end as soon as it begins. That of course is what Rosamund Lehmann does best. ( SUNDAY TIMES)
Lehmann has always written brilliantly of women in love ( Margaret Drabble)
A novelist in the grand tradition . . . The first writer to filter her stories through a woman's feelings and perceptions ( Anita Brookner)

* Published to coincide with the feature film THE HEART OF ME starring Helena Bonham Carter, Paul Bettany, Olivia Williams and Eleanor Bron.
