John Barnard, a leading merchant, is a pillar of 19th century rectitude. Though stern with his tippling wife, he is undermined by helpless love for his cold-hearted daughter and the engaging weakling Thomas Kettle.

Review:

Hurrah to Virago for re-publishing this mesmerising novel...Stern father, brandy-swilling mother, dutiful but rebellious offspring - wicked * WOMAN'S JOURNAL * A novel created with solidity and subtlety of feeling, a fusion of warmth, wit and quietly biting shrewdness that are reminiscent of Jane Austen * ATLANTIC REVIEW *
