A Wreath of Roses, by Elizabeth Taylor

Regular price €7.00

Camilla is finding her solitary life as a school secretary dull and uninteresting and she goes to spend a holiday with some friends.

However the women have drifted apart; Liz is caught up with her baby and her marriage, and Frances is absorbed in her painting.

When Camilla becomes infatuated with a vaguely sinister man she met on the train journey, she finds herself entangled with a handsome, assured and dangerous liar.

“a marvellous, dark novel” – The Guardian

Elizabeth Taylor, née Coles (1912 – 1975) was an English novelist and short-story writer, who specialised in small-scale dramas of a domestic nature, which she portrayed with great insight and attention to detail. Lady Antonia Fraser called her “one of the most underrated writers of the 20th century”.

Published by The Reprint Society in 1950.
