- DescriptionEarly in 1941, Juno Marlowe is hurrying down a London street as the bombs start to fall. She is rescued by a stranger who offers her the protection of his house.

- Author BiographyMary Wesley was born near Windsor in 1912. Her education took her to the London School of Economics and during the War she worked in the War Office. She also worked part-time in he antiques trade. Mary Wesley lived in London, France, Italy, Germany and several places in the West Country. She used to comment that her 'chief claim to fame is arrested development, getting my first novel published at the age of seventy'.

With the help of Kim Sayer's evocative photographs Mary Wesley showed us her own personal West Country in her last book, Part of the Scenery.
