Following on from A Change in Climate, this brilliant novel follows two girls as they leave behind their pasts and set off to the new preoccupations of 1970s London.

It is London, 1970. Carmel McBain, in her first term at university, has cut free of her childhood roots in the north. Among the gossiping, flirtatious girls of Tonbridge Hall, she begins her experiments in life and love. But the year turns. The mini-skirt falls out of style and an era of concealment begins.

Carmel's world darkens, and tragedy waits in the wings.

Author Biography: Hilary Mantel was born in Derbyshire. She was educated at a convent and later studied law. After ten years abroad in Africa and the Middle East, she returned to Britain in 1985 to make a career as a writer.
Industry Reviews
Moving, in the 1970s, from a terraced house in a small Lancashire cotton town, via the Convent School ('where discouragement was wielded like an intangible baton') to London University was, for Julianne, Karina and Carmen (through whose eyes we view the experience) like skipping a generation and entering a foreign land. A witty, sardonic, astute and acutely observant account of confused feminine rebellion - and the Catholic church. (Kirkus UK)
