About this title:
Synopsis:
In the faded coastal village of Newby, everyone looks out for—and in on—each other, and beneath the deceptively sleepy exterior, passions run high. Beautiful divorcee Tory is painfully involved with her neighbor, Robert, while his wife Beth, Tory's best friend, is consumed by the worlds she creates in her novels, oblivious to the relationship developing next door. Their daughter Prudence is aware, however, and is appalled by the treachery she observes. Mrs. Bracey, an invalid whose grasp on life is slipping, forever peers from her window, constantly prodding her daughters for news of the outside world. And Lily Wilson, a lonely young widow, is frightened of her own home. Into their lives steps Bertram, a retired naval officer with the unfortunate capacity to inflict lasting damage while trying to do good.

From the Publisher:
The war over, retired naval officer Bertram comes to a quiet fishing village intending to paint. Curious, and with that strangely unfortunate capacity to inflict lasting damage while trying instead to do good, he begins delving into every corner of the picturesque backwater. There’s a lot going on beneath the quiet surface: pretty divorcee Tory is painfully involved with the local doctor—who just happens to be married to her best friend, Beth. And Beth continues to churn out successful romantic novels, oblivious to the relationship developing next door. Meanwhile, Lily pins vain hopes on Bertram’s careless kindness. Written with wit and compassion, A View of the Harbour is an enchanting, devastatingly well–observed novel. Elizabeth Taylor, who died in 1975, is the author of such highly praised novels as At Mrs Lippincote’s, Angel, and Blaming.
