‘Lynne Reid Banks’ compassionate first novel examines the stigma of unmarried motherhood in pre-pill, pre-Abortion Act Britain… While the social climate has changed drastically since publication, a transgressive frisson still crackles from the pages’
The Guardian

Pregnant by accident, kicked out of home by her father, 27-year-old Jane Graham goes to ground in the sort of place she feels she deserves – a bug-ridden boarding-house attic in Fulham. She thinks she wants to hide from the world, but finds out that even at the bottom of the heap, friends and love can still be found, and self-respect is still worth fighting for.
