[light shelfwear to bottom edge of rear cover, otherwise a solid clean book that appears to have never been read; jacket shows some scraping and surface-chipping along edges and at spine ends]. Theodora Benson (1906-1968), the daughter of Godfrey Rathbone Benson (aka Lord Charnwood), a British author, academic, Liberal politician and philanthropist, the author made a name for herself in the late 1920s and 1930s for her tales of "a cynical world of failed romance, lost ideals, social foibles, and ruthless self-seeking." This novel, her fourth, revolves around "three letters, three invitations, three choices," all for events on the same weekend, all received by Claudia, the book's protagonist, on her 22nd birthday -- and representing her "three prospective lives to which these are the key." Benson later wrote thrillers, short fiction and travel books, and worked as a ghostwriter on official speeches during World War II. As with her other early works, this book is fairly uncommon (more so in the American edition, more so yet in jacket).
