Invitation To The Waltz Hardback
Part of the Virago Modern Classics series
On her seventeenth birthday, Olivia Curtis receives: a diary for her innermost thoughts, a china ornament, a ten-shilling note and a roll of flame-coloured silk for her first ball dress.
She anticipates the dance, the greatest and most terrifying event of her life so far, with uncertainty and excitement.
For her pretty sister Kate, it is sure to be a triumph, but what will it be for shy, awkward Olivia?Rosamond Lehmann, one of the best-loved writers of the twentieth century, perfectly captures the emotions of a girl poised on the threshold of womanhood.
