Set in the 'Great Depression' of 1931-2, The acceptance world invites us once again to join Nicholas Jenkins and his friends in their dance to the music of time. It is against this background that Jenkins enacts a daring love affair with Templer's married sister, Jean. The ineffable Widmerpool has a new job in the City, in a financial house that 'accepts' debts. However, the phrase also implies how the main characters, now in their middle or late twenties, find themselves 'accepting' what life offers people of their particular character and circumstances.
