Bowen, Elizabeth

To the stuffy, French bourgeois house, with the evil old woman in her sickroom upstairs, come two children who have never met before to spend a few hours in the care of Mme Fisher's daughter before going on their separate ways. Henrietta, conventionally English but not unfeeling, is on her way to stay with relations at Mentone; Leopold, with his disconcerting manner and precocious slyness, is there be-cause events in the lives of other grown-up characters are moving to-wards some sort of tragic climax. It is as if the whole of the past has led up to this gloomy afternoon, which also holds within it the seeds of a no less tragic future.
