Rosamond Lehmann's "The Weather in the Streets" is a sequel to her earlier book, "Invitation to the Waltz". Here, Olivia, who in the prevoius book was a nervous debutante, is now older, though perhaps not much wiser. Separated from her husband, she falls in love with the married brother of an old friend and embarks upon a tempestuous affair. Compared to its predecessor, "The Weather in the Streets" is darker, but more powerful and more complex. Olivia's inner monologues are brilliantly done, and Lehmann even slips into the first person for one section of the book, though the change is so unobtrusive that I almost didn't notice it. Of all of the writers I've read, Lehmann is one of the best at getting into her character's thoughts and showing us their experiences and emotions honestly and directly. Bookseller Inventory # 40401
