The Death Of The Heart, Paperback / softback Book

The Death Of The Heart Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

An immaculate portrait of adolescent love from one of our most beloved novelists. 'One of the last century's greatest woman writers' GuardianWhen sixteen-year-old Portia is orphaned, she is plunged into the sophisticated and politely treacherous world of her wealthy half-brother's home.

There she encounters the attractive cad Eddie. To him, Portia is at once child and woman, and he fears her gushing love.

To her, Eddie is the only reason to be alive. But when Eddie follows Portia to a sea-side resort, the flash of a cigarette lighter in a darkened cinema illuminates a stunning romantic betrayal - and sets in motion one of the most moving and desperate flights of the heart in modern literature.
