Europeans gay and straight, as well as those of every class populate a novel no-one can put down. Charlie is not quite - actually not at all - declasse as an English aristocrat but she is also very much a playwright and, indeed, a Parisian. Known as a writer, and a lover, here she falls in love perhaps for the first time. In the circumstances, Anna, a very bohemian painter, may be an unlikely choice. And yet, while a connection between the demimonde and Society is something known, this is different. The period before the first World War sets the time in which these Englishwomen finally find each other and when the rules for living are once again re-written.
