Seventy years later, released by widowhood, and to the dismay of her pompous children, she abandons the family home for a tiny house in Hampstead. Here she recollects the dreams of youth, and revels in her newfound freedom with her odd assortment of companions: Genoux, her French maid- Mr. Bucktrout, her house agent- and a coffin maker who pictures people dead in order to reveal their true characters. And then theres Mr. FitzGeorge, an eccentric millionaire who met and loved her in India when she was young and very lovely. It is here in this world of her own that she finds a passion that comes only with the freedom to choose, and it is this, her greatest gift, that she passes on to the only one who can understand its value.First published in 1931, Vita Sackville-Wests masterpiece is the fictional companion to her great friend Virginia Woolfs A Room of Ones Own.
