About the Author:

Pamela Haines was born in Yorkshire, like so many of the characters in her novels. Knaresborough, Leeds and Harrogate have all played a part in her family background. She was educated at a convent in the Midlands, and then read English at Newnham College, Cambridge. As a child she wrote non-stop, but around the age of seventeen, life became too busy, and she did not write again until her late thirties, by which time she was married to a doctor, and had five children. In 1971 she won the Spectator New Writing Prize with a short story, and eventually completed her first novel, Tea at Gunter's, in 1973. Critically acclaimed, it was the joint winner of the Yorkshire Arts Association Award for Young Writers. It was followed in 1976 by A Kind of War, described as 'a book to re-read and treasure' in the Daily Telegraph, and the even more successful Men on White Horses followed in 1978. Haines has written four further novels
