First UK Edition of the author's quite scarce third book. Clean Green Boards with bright gilt titling to the spine. In the first issue pictorial dust jacket (priced at 15s - NOT price clipped) designed by Charles Mozley, which is overall VG but with some small edge chips, with a little shelfwear/dusty spotting and a few small closed tears (internally repaired with archive tape) but 99.5% complete - just a tiny loss to the very tip of the front corner which is hardly noticable, otherwise a very clean dustjacket which is now protected in a clear book plastic cover and looks great. Slightly dusty top edge. Internally a little very light offsetting/foxing to the front and rear free endpapers, o/w near Fine. No Inscriptions or Marks. 318 pp. Overall an Excellent Very Clean, Tight and Bright copy of a book now difficult to find in a VG state with a d/j. Images available on request. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall.

Acerca de


The quiet life of schoolmaster Bill Mor and his wife Nan is disturbed when a young woman, Rain Carter, arrives at the school to paint the portrait of the headmaster. Mor, hoping to enter politics, becomes aware of new desires and a different dream of life. A complex battle develops, involving love, guilt, magic, art and political ambition. Mor's teenage children and their mother fight discreetly and ruthlessly against the invader. The Head, himself enchanted, advises Mor to seize the girl and run. The final decision rests with Rain. Can a 'great love' be purchased at too high a price?
