A Game of Hide and Seek by Elizabeth Taylor


 

A Game of Hide and Seek (Virago Modern Classics)A Game of Hide and Seek by Elizabeth Taylor

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Opening lines:
Sometimes in the long summer’s evenings, which are so marked a part of our youth, Harriet and Vesey played hide-and-seek with the younger children, running across the tufted meadows, their shoes yellow with the pollen of buttercups.

This is the love story between Harriet and Vesey, a love they captivated since their youth. However, their lives take a different course and Harriet married another man. But their love nevertheless persists even if this not brings a happy end to the story.

This is the first book of this author I’ve read and I’m planning to read more. The author has a vivid way of writing, portraying in a very sensible way the social paradigms of the beginning of 20th century.
