First published in 1953, The Echoing Grove is one of Rosamond Lehmann's most acclaimed novels, and tells of three characters, Rickie Masters, his wife Madeleine, and her sister Dinah. Rickie's premature death leaves the two sisters in uneasy communion, for his death has made widows of them both. For many years, Dinah, exotic and sensual, has conducted a clandestine affair with Rickie; and Madeleine, calm and resolute, has accepted that her marriage has been of limited success.With extraordinary insight, Lehmann explores the sublimity and the pain of these fatally interrelated lives in her magnifient novel.

Rosamond Lehmann (1901-1990) was born in Buckinghamshire and educated privately before going to Girton College, Cambridge, as a scholar. She was made a CBE in 1982 and remains one of the most distinguished writers of the 20th century.Review:
'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 'She is immensely readable, acute, passionate, funny and original' Elizabeth Jane Howard
