"A tragedy of manners, like Jane Austin in 1950s London. It's 1952 and for England, it's a brave and bright new world. The Depression is over, the WAr is over, even the endless bloody rationing is nearly over, and the future looks as lovely as the young Queen Elizabeth, due to be crowned next June. Ms. Harriett Wallis, for one, cannot wait for tomorrow. Her husband has an important job with an important firm, the children are settling in with the new nanny, the new fashions are terrifically flattering, and the War-grubby, grim, ghastly-is done. Life is going to be just killing wonderful."-- Provided by publisher.

Not a who-dunnit it but a why-dunnit. Keeping up appearances in the new post-war England is hard. In the midst of much wry commentary on class in what is should be a classless society, there are lots of secrets lurking. A delicious read.
