The Virgin in the Garden is the first novel to feature FredericaPotter, and the beginning of a triumphant quartet of novels. Set inYorkshire in 1952 as the inhabitants of the area set about celebratingthe accession of a new Queen, this is the tale of a brilliant andeccentric family fatefully divided. The Virgin in the Garden is awonderfully entertaining novel, in which enlightenment andsexuality, Elizabethan drama and comedy intersect richly andunpredictably.
