Miserly and mysterious, the richest man in the Five Towns lives simply, ruling his household with an iron fist and a cruel temper. His daughter, Anna, is used to the life of strict, thrifty order imposed by her father. But when she comes of age, Anna inherits a small fortune and attracts the attentions of the town's most eligible bachelor. A new world seems to be opening to Anna, but her heart, given a taste of freedom, leads her in unexpected directions.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Arnold Bennett is very much worth reading. This will be contrary to what any of you who might have studied English Literature at university since the last war will have been told, so please park such prejudices." * Daily Telegraph *
"Bennett's great novels all deal with the great emotions, though they are revealed through the stories of 'ordinary' people" * Independent on Sunday *
"A writer of genius" * Guardian *
"Bennett has long been one of my favourite writers" -- Peter James

“Well worth reading.”

This book took me a long time to read as the writing tends to long-windedness. Having said that, there are some lovely descriptions of the Staffordshire countryside and the people of the county are well portrayed. The... More
