Dusty Answer Summary

Dusty Answer by Rosamond Lehmann

Mamma was fast asleep at home, her spirit lapped in unconsciousness. Her dreams would not divine that her daughter had stolen out to meet a lover.
And next door also they slept unawares, while one of them broke from the circle and came alone to clasp a stranger . . .'

Judith Earle, over-earnest and inexperienced, has always been a little in love with each of the four cousins who come to stay next door and, on her return from Cambridge, becomes madly in love with one of them - Roddy, the 'sensation-hunter'. DUSTY ANSWER traces with delicate nostalgia childhood friendships and the pangs of thwarted young love.

Dusty Answer Reviews

Lehmann has always written brilliantly of women in love, of mothers and daughters * MARGARET DRABBLE *
The lyrical, sensuous quality of her descriptive writing and her clear yet compassionate insight into individual psychology puts her immediately into the front rank of English writers * THE TIMES *
It will consume you entirely, transforming your whole inner life for the time it takes to read * Jonathan Coe *
