Description - The Lark by E. Nesbit
'When did two girls of our age have such a chance as we've got-to have a lark entirely on our own? No chaperone, no rules, no . . . '
'No present income or future prospects,' said Lucilla.
'No slavery!' cried Jane.
It's 1919 and Jane and her cousin Lucilla leave school to find that their guardian has gambled away their inheritance, but left them with a small cottage outside London. Determined to become successful businesswomen, the cousins embark on a series of misadventures - setting up a flower shop, a guest house, and ignoring the attentions of male admirers - in a bid to secure their independence.
The Lark is a joyful, witty and utterly charming novel about two young women trying to find their place in the world, with an introduction from the Booker-winning author Penelope Lively.
