Rosamond Lehmann's classic account of the joy and anguish of an illicit love affair continues the story of Olivia, whose rite of passage into adulthood was described in Invitation To The Waltz.

Now living a faintly bohemian life in the London of the early 1930s, Olivia meets up again with Rollo, the handsome and unhappily married son of Lord and Lady Spencer, and falls prey once more to his charm and confidence.

Dramatised by Hattie Naylor.
