From the book cover:
"'She looked at Emily with an unspoken question, ashamed to speak, "It's all right," Emily said, scarcely moving her lips. She did not want John Gill to hear her talking to his wife. Women against men. . .'
In these three novels, published together in England for the first time, Storm Jameson looks at three women, their relationships to men, and to other women. Beautiful Victoria Form, seen through the eyes of her childhood friend Fanny, is a famous novelist and relentless seductress: her favourite pastime is to ensnare men - and to betray women. Emily Lambton is the daughter of Sir John, owner of a shipping line. She makes a brilliant marriage to Lord Holl but falls in love with a socialist clerk, Evan - a love that is to consume her life. Lastly we meet a nameless middle-aged woman: one of the so many who have lived off men all their lives. Alone now in a shabby bedsitter, her looks gone, she reaps the bitter rewards allotted in that ancient battle between the sexes."
