Book summary

A novel of love, death and aristocracy in twenties London.

Consider Vivien in November 1922: she is twenty-four, and a spinster. She wears fashionable clothes, but she is plain and - almost worse in those times - intelligent. At nearly six foot tall, she is known unkindly by her family as 'the giantess.' Fortunately, Vivien is rich, so she can travel to London and bribe a charismatic gentleman publisher to marry her. What he does not know is that Vivien is pregnant with another man's child, and will die in childbirth in just a few months...
