First Edition. "The story of a young woman who finds herself, as she emerges from the numbness of her first days of widowhood into a gradual realization that life is before and not behind her. Her first attempts to spread her wings result in a salutary singeing. Her second flight takes her farther afield, but brings eventual happiness. An unusual story told against a background of London drawing rooms, of Paris sunshine, of Polish estates. It seems yet another now trail for the author of Enchanted Winter and of Describe a Circle, a better book than the latter, but lacking the subtle charm and wit of the former." Near Fine in Very Good price clipped dustjacket, chipped at top spine end.
