This novel by E.M.Delafield (best-selling author of the "Provincial Lady" series) is one of the readers' favorite. It gives us a perceptive look at the coming out of a debutante and her increasingly desperate search for a husband. The perspective is sympathetic to the heroine, Monica, and her mother giving a fairly scathing look at the society they had to deal with. "She could never, looking backwards, remember a time when she had not known that a woman's failure or success in life depended entirely upon whether or not she succeeded in getting a husband" wrote the author, in a line full of wit and social critique.
