The camomile lawn: a Novel
1st American ed.
Oliver is just back from the Spanish Civil War and world-weary at only nineteen. Calypso is gorgeous, utterly selfish and determined to marry for money. Polly and Walter, brother and sister, play their cards close to their chests. Then there's little Sophie, who nobody loves. Soon the world will be swept into war again and the five cousins will enter a whirligig of sex, infidelity, love and loss, but for now they have one last, gaspingly hot summer at the house by the cliffs with the camomile lawn. A beloved bestseller from an author ahead of her time, The Camomile Lawn is a waspishly witty, devil-may-care delight.

|display_description||Mary Wesley's sprawling novel of wartime England-and the loss of innocence It is August 1939. At an elegant manor house high above the sea, five cousins gather for their annual holiday. As Calypso, Walter, Polly, Oliver, and ten-year-old Sophy explore the limits of blood, friendship, and their blossoming sexualities, war looms on the horizon. This will be the last summer that they spend together; it is a season marked by the heady joys of self-discovery, the agonizing pain of betrayal, and a world on the edge of conflict. A novel of dazzling breadth and scope, The Camomile Lawn journeys from the end of childhood to the slings and arrows of old age with the humor and insight readers have come to expect from the beloved Mary Wesley.|
