Book: They were defeated

Author: Rose Macaulay

Details: (c) The estate of Rose Macaulay 1932; Pub 1981 Oxford University Press; ISBN 0-19-281316-1

Verdict: They were defeated is a successful and readable historical novel.

Reasons for reading it: Rose Macaulay used to live in my parents' house and I grab anything of hers I can find. Though she's an unfashionable writer so collecting her stuff is taking a while.

How it came into my hands: I was delighted to find it at The Strand when I was in New York last year.
