by Stella Gibbons dramatised for radio by Christopher William Hill
In this sparkling pre-war comedy of manners, the young, widowed and pretty Viola Wither finally has the chance to escape her stifling in-laws in Essex.
Whilst they are spending a month in the Lakes, she and her sister-in-law Tina escape to Stanton on Sea.
Viola is still pining for the dashing Victor Spring - who has kissed her - and Tina for the beautiful chauffeur, Saxon - likewise.
But is it all hopeless?
