[good solid copy, a bit of soiling to top edge, very lightly bumped at top rear corner but otherwise very nice; jacket shows just a bit of handling wear, wrinkling at top of rear flap, also seems trimmed so that it's just a tiny bit shorter than the book]. "Early in his career Edward Elgar, together with his much older wife, breaks a journey at Wolverhampton and meets Dora Penny, the young, beautiful, spirited daughter of a rector. A passion develops between them. With elegance and wit the novel traces the course of this relationship, which is shaped partly by genuine affinity, and partly by the egocentricity with which genius takes what it needs from life and protects itself from what it does not." The third in this author's series of novels about the English Midlands; preceded by "The Good Pit Man" and "The Lover Next Door."
