The five women are dead because, over three decades, they broke the rules for girls, wives, mistresses, mothers, and career women. Charlotte chose Oxford over marriage. Eleanor and Andrea rebelled against respectable men. Ida and Laura confronted the South African establishment. Celia, living alone in a Greek village, remembers them all. The final chapter pulls these six into one, explaining Celia's decision to face England again now that the rules are changing. Some readers may find the very British style plodding, but it's an interesting story for public libraries. Maurice Taylor, Brunswick Cty. Lib., Southport, N.C.
