'She was . . . marvellous' GUARDIAN

'I admired many authors. But Molly, I loved' DIANA ATHILL

'A writer of genius' WALL STREET JOURNAL

When Oliver visits Pullinstown, he is introduced to wild days of hunting and shooting, and to characters like his cousins, with their passion for horses and trickery, and Sir Richard, elderly, but a match for his headstrong offspring.

In this early novel by Molly Keane, the high romance and disarray of the vanished Anglo-Irish world is evoked with humour, nostalgia, and undercurrents of powerful feeling.

The author has also written under the pseudonym, M. J. Farrell.
