* A classic Molly Keane title describes the unsettling arrival of Mary, a bridesmaid, a week before the wedding... * Introduction by Polly Devlin
Molly Keane was born in Co. Kildare, Ireland, in 1904 into a 'rather serious Hunting and Fishing Church-going family' who gave her little education at the hands of governesses. Molly Keane's interests when young were 'hunting and horses and having a good time'; she began writing only to supplement her dress allowance. She died in 1996.
'Molly Keane ... is robust about sinful human nature and the intrigues of the heart...' - V.S. Pritchet
