adela sellingworth was a renowned beauty in her youth, whose sense of self worth came entirely from the admiration she received for her looks. This novel is about the struggles and humiliations she goes through as she tries to come to terms with ageing and her loss of looks.
This is a really good book with themes which seem very relevant today, and a plot with sufficient dramatic tension to keep the reader involved and interested to the end. Highly recommended.
Muy buena esta opcion.
My Great-Aunt read this book to me when I was 8 or 10. I loved Beth so much. That's probably why Beth is my 23year old's name.
