The British Library
An evocative novel from a curated series by popular women writers, republished by the Library to bring once popular and bestselling tales to a new audience; each with an eclectic mix of heroines reflecting the changing lives of women across the 20th century.

Dangerous Ages: a lively and darkly humorous novel set in England post-World War One, exploring how women find their place in the world at each stage of life. Set around the day-to-day cares of four generations of women within the same family and capturing competing inter-generational voices. Meet the widowed Mrs Hilary, in her sixties and feeling she has lost her way; her sprightly octogenarian mother; Mrs Hilary’s contrasting daughters Neville and Nan, both learning about life and love; while Neville’s daughter Gerda rejects the principles of her mother’s generation entirely.

Originally published in 1921, a classic story by Rose Macaulay (1881-1951), an acclaimed novelist, essayist and travel writer known for her satirical comedy.
