A very nice copy. "British author Storm Jameson (1891-1986) prolific output spanned over fifty novels and numerous essays, plays, and memoirs. Jameson's work has a keen social consciousness and a deep engagement with the political and cultural issues of her time. Her early novels, such as the "Mirror in Darkness" trilogy, explore the lives of independent women navigating the challenges of the early 20th century. Her later work, including the "Captain's Wife" series, delves into the tumultuous events of World War II and its aftermath. A committed anti-fascist and advocate for refugees, Jameson served as president of the English Centre of International PEN, a worldwide association of writers, from 1938 to 1945. Her writings reflect her commitment to social justice and her nuanced understanding of human nature. Her work offers a rich exploration of 20th-century life and continues to resonate with readers for its vivid characters, its incisive social commentary, and its compelling storytelling. Her novels are a must-read for those interested in British literature and history."—Bing. Jacket design ny Victor Reinganum
