Description - The Little Girls by Elizabeth Bowen
In 1914 they had been eleven years old; three little girls at St Agatha's, a day school on the South Coast. Fifty years later, Dinah, beautiful as ever, advertises in the national newspapers to find the other two - Clare, now established with a successful business, and Sheila, a married woman, glossy, chic and correct. Can friendship can be taken up where it was left off? What are the revelations - and the dangers - in summoning up childhood?
