Editorial Reviews for this title:
Her brief marriage over, Clara retreats to her parental home. Seeing herself forever imprisoned behind a glass wall of guilt and repression, she both longs for and fears the world beyond. The love affair she seeks as an escape cracks her delicate sense of identity and Clara descends into madness.

Clara Batchelor is twenty-two. Her brief, doomed marriage to Archie ended, she returns to her parents hoping for comfort. But theirs is a strict Catholic home, and its confines form a dangerous glass wall of guilt and repression between Clara and the outside world. Clara both longs for and fears what lies beyond, yet when she escapes into an exhilarating and passionate love affair, her fragile identity cracks. An extraordinary portrayal of a woman's descent into madness, this novel completes Antonia White's brilliant "May Quartet."
