1993. Reprint. A near fine, unmarked copy in a good d/w with some edge bumping and a repaired tear to the fore edge.
Set in Geneva in the inter-war period, this book conveys all the high idealism of that benighted period in European history. It charts the rite of passage of Edith Berry, from wilfulness and self-delusion to a more humble and realistic understanding of what one human being can hope to achieve.
