The Beginning of Spring - Penelope Fitzgerald

Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ.

Reprint. From the cover: “Frank Reid had been born and brought up in Moscow. His father emigrated there in the 1870s and started a print-works which, by 1913, had shrunk from what it was when Frank inherited it. In the very early part of that year, to add to his troubles, Nellie, Frank’s wife, caught the train from the Alexander Station back westwards, without explanation. How is a reasonable man like Frank to cope? How should he keep his house running? Should He consult the Anglican chaplain’s wife? Should he take in a nanka, a nanny? Should he listen to the Tolstoyan advice of his chief book-keeper? How do people live together, and what happens when, sometimes, they don’t?”
