The Water Gipsies (A Peacock Book)

9780140470697: The Water Gipsies (A Peacock Book)

Jane Bell is a dreamer. A devoted follower of romantic films and Sunday newspapers, she aspires to a new life - a life away from the drudgery of her servants' quarters and one full of the parties and fashion and fun that 1920s London has to offer. On course to finding this Elysian life, she makes a series of tragic decisions - and ones that seem to secure her lot rather than freeing her from it. Learning to savour the 'bitter-sweet' taste her life has to offer, she returns home to the water and allows her dreams to slowly die away. In Jane Bell, A P Herbert has tenderly captured the sorrows - and joys - of a mind battling with its own realities and aspirations.
