When, on the night of their wedding, Ned asks his new wife Rose to promise that she will never leave him, Rose is quick to give her aristocratic husband her word: keeping it, however, proves harder. For even on the day when she has promised to forsake all others, Rose's heart is with the true love of her life, Mylo, the penniless but passionate Frenchman who, within five minutes of their meeting declared his love and asked her to marry him. Whilst Rose remains true to her promise never to leave Ned, not even the war, social conventions, nor the prying of her overly inquisitive and cheerfully immoral neighbours, can stop her and Mylo from meeting and loving one another.

Trust it to mary to tell a romantic love story in a funny and witty ways, I started reading her books with this one and have been hooked since!
I have only recently discovered Mary Wesley (picking up a book from the "free box" @ my local book shop) and being fascinated w/her wit & commentaries of the frailties of her characters) from page 1 to the very end. Plus her fascinating biography on the web! I'm now beginning to search out all of her books--gratefully. Many thanks, ab
I was given one of Mary Wesley's other books and thoroughly enjoyed it so I went looking for more. She tells great stories! This one tells the tale of a woman who bows to the pressure of her parents and marries for security. She presents one face to all of the people around her and keeps another side of her life hidden. A great tale, against the backdrop of WWII in England. Her characters are interesting and complex. Some of them you love, others you can't help but dislike but every one of them has a place in the story. Great reading.
