Mary Wesley was born in Berkshire. She wrote two children's books before publishing her first adult novel in 1983 at the age of 70. Since then she has produced a succession of books dealing with middle-class mores, each written with ironic, detached amusement, and taking an unblinered, though compassionate look at sexual values. One of the best known is The Camomile Lawn, which considers sexual and emotional relationships in the turmoil of World War II. It, like several of her novels has been made into a television series.From Library Journal:
Set in Europe between the two World Wars, Wesley's seventh novel probes undercurrents of fear threatening the security of friendship and family ties of a group of international vacationers. Meeting in 1926 at a resort in Brittany, the group forever retains ties forged on holiday. Wesley breathes life into this anxious period of history, tracing the growth of Flora, whose parents hate her; Felix, son of a Dutch baroness; best friends Cosmo and Hubert; and the Leigh family. Slowly, we come to understand Flora's successes and failures, as well as her need to appear "sensible" in a world with few constants. More than a comedy of manners, this is a story of an entire era--its relationships and its flaws.
