Book description
When Oliver visits the glorious house of Pullinstown, he is introduced to wild young days of fox hunting, fishing and shooting snipe, and to his Irish cousins, Willow and Dick, whose great affection for one another is equalled only by their passion for horses and trickery. There, too, is Sir Richard, elderly now, but still a match for his headstrong offspring; James, without whom the house is all to blazes, and their neighbors, the swan-like Lady Eveleen and the redoubtable Lady Honour, Sir Richard's old adversary and love, whose shafts of venom have been well-seasoned by the passage of time. Combining a rich portrait of zestful youth and the vagaries of age, with a colourful evocation of place, Mollie Keane brings a vanished world to life.
