From the Publisher:

Like Ellis’s popular The Inn at the Edge of the World, this novel is set in the Christmas season. Here, the social comedy of the Marsh family’s festivities is set against the backdrop of a mother’s grief over the death of her son. Originally published in 1978. With a new Afterword by James Mustich, Jr.

About the Author:

Alice Thomas Ellis, whose real name was Anna Haycraft, was half-Finnish, half-Welsh and spent her childhood in Liverpool and as an evacuee in North Wales. She lived in Camden in North London with her family. Her friend Beryl Bainbridge wrote of her: "Whenever I had to go somewhere in an aeroplane I'd ring Anna up and ask if she thought God would keep it in the air. She always said He would."
