As she describes in a new preface to this reissue, the idea for the novel took a grip on her such that she wrote without planning, inspired by the theme of a childs growing sense of intuition.A sensitive, mystery-tinged portrayal of social tensions... Cora Ravenwing, village scapegoat, is the first child whom narrator Becky Stokes meets when her family moves outside London in the mid-1950s- and her reflections deftly pick up the undercurrents of gossip, hostility, and social pretension that power the story of their years troubled friendship.
