Hostages to Fortune

A mediocre Persephone title by Elizabeth Cambridge, written in 1933, dealing with the dreary wartime stiff upper lips (WW1), a doctor’s wife who’s a bit dreamy who gives up her writing to take care of a drafty huge country home and raise three inexplicable children. I suppose I’m addicted to these grey-covered Persephones but they do start to muddle together when they’re all in that tweener period between the wars and you’re always waiting for the husband to do something dumb.
