The Vet's Daughter : A Virago Modern Classic, Paperback

The Vet's Daughter : A Virago Modern Classic Paperback

Part of the VMC series


Growing up in Edwardian south London, Alice Rowlands longs for romance and excitement, for a release from a life that is dreary, restrictive and lonely.

Her father, a vet, is harsh and domineering; his new girlfriend brash and lascivious.

Alice seeks refuge in memories and fantasies, in her rapturous longing for Nicholas, a handsome young sailor, and in the blossoming of what she perceives as her occult powers.

A series of strange events unfolds that leads her, dressed in bridal white, to a scene of ecstatic triumph and disaster among the crowds on Clapham Common.

The Vet's Daughter is a uniquely vivid, witty and touching story of love and mystery.
