Aged just seventeen Hermione is passed from the hands of an inattentive mother into an engagement with a young man she barely knows. Glad to have her pretty daughter married and celebrated by their social circle, Hermione's mother gives little thought to the fitness of the match. Hermione now finds she must grow up, and grow into a life with a man who is not her natural partner.

Following Hermione and her family from the late eighteen hundreds through the First World War and the changing society of the post-war era, in Marriage of Hermione Richmal Crompton explores the strains and joys of an imperfect marriage with a warm and humorous eye.

Richmal Crompton's adult novels are an absolute delight and every bit as charming as her beloved Just William series. A nostalgic treat for fans of the gentler brand of interwar fiction, this is the perfect heritage read for fans of 1930s fiction at its best.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Miss Crompton writes, as always, with distinction and humour. Her story of Hermione's married life can be heartily recommended as an individual novel about ordinary people. * Spectator *
It seems to me to have been done exceedingly well . . . You come to know and like these Derehams, and appreciate the intimacy with which they are presented -- Ralph Straus * The Sunday Times *
Ironical, humorous, and brilliantly understanding * Everyman *
It is continuously interesting. Miss Crompton is amazingly sympathetic, amazingly shrewd, and Hermione and her family come to life under her pen * Saturday Review *
You will find each boy and girl so vivid, and the sustaining thread of Hermione's slow fulfilment so convincing, that the story will enchant you * Evening News *
