Publication 1995

Lord Ongar’s dissipation abroad leave Julia a rich widow, but also the subject of (unfounded) rumours about her infidelity. She returns to England, shunned by Society and friendless, save for Harry, who now facilitates between his fiancée ad Julia, for whom his feelings have revived.

Set at the huge, uncomfortable Clavering Hall in the country and in a London of seedy gambling houses, with a cleverly contrasted supporting cast, The Claverings is subtly ironic, for in some respects the wrong people are rewarded.
