Description: Molly Hassard grew up in the dower house of Dromore, a house built to accommodate a series of Hassard widows displaced by the deaths of their husbands and the marriages of their eldest sons; grandeur replaced by comfort, power by convenience. Caught up as she is in the peculiar world of the Anglo-Irish - Protestant Irish in an almost totally Catholic Ireland - Molly sees that Anglo-Irish tradition is now too expensive to maintain, that their society is in decline. But as they emerge from the postwar years, the Anglo-Irish refuse to face the inevitable: They have beautiful old houses that are freezing cold; although food is sometimes scarce, the tables are always exquisitely set; and people talk very seriously about the importance of making suitable marriages. Feeling as abandoned by her country as by her parents' deaths, Molly flees the elegant poverty and painful memories of Ireland for the modern luxury and easier life to be found in the swinging London of the 1960s, a place where the houses are cozy and dry and people actually buy jewelry rather than inherit it. As Molly learns that coming-of-age means not merely growing up, but coming to find her place between the romance of tradition and the allure of the new, Annabel Davis-Goff combines a moving love story with an unforgettably vivid glimpse of a world that no longer exists.
