Inhaltsangabe: The charming, childish wife of a successful lawyer, falls asleep one afternoon on her Victorian chaise longue, recently purchased in an antique shop, and awakes in the fetid atmosphere of an ugly, over-furnished room she has never seen before. This is the story of a trip backward in time in which a nostalgia for the quaint turns into a hideous nightmare.

Buchbeschreibung Persephone Books Ltd Jun 1999, 1999. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - An illusionary reverie cossets sentiment and indulges some decorative detail of the period when it transposes Melanie, as she lies on her Victorian chaise longue, to an earlier identity as Milly Baines. As Melanie, she has everything to live for- the love of Guy and a new baby, and the protective care of Sister and Nanny shrouds her as she convalesces from tuberculosis. But the dream in which she becomes Milly Baines brings her into a nightmare world where she is dying of consumption under the vindictive surveillance of a sister; where the man she loves will marry another; where her illegitimate baby had been taken from her; and where she faces the terrifying duality of being Milly- or Melly. For Melly, this long sleep is indeed a tortured time, but for the reader, presumably feminine, it is at best a catnap- and a tour de force of more skill than substance. (Kirkus Reviews) Englisch.
