[light wear to book's extremities, a little age-toning to edges of text block; jacket chipped at top of spine and at lower left corner of front panel, with light staining and a bit of edgewear]. The first book by this British writer, about the intense friendship between two very different women, one of whom is thrust into a deep and devastating introspection after the other meets a violent death. Per the jacket blurb, the author had had a somewhat unsettled childhood, but had wanted to be a writer since the age of twelve, and had "consigned a number of tentative books and plays to the dust-bin" before completing this one (which was first published in England under the title "Honey Out of the Rock"). She proceeded to make up for lost time, following up this novel with three more in just a few years -- after which she then apparently just stopped writing (or at least publishing). Maybe she burned out, or maybe -- given that she already had three children with her husband, novelist/journalist/poet Hubert Nicholson -- her subsequent literary silence was due to nothing more complicated than a decision, or a need, to devote more time to her family. (Interesting to note that when Mr. Nicholson died in 1996, she was referred to as "novelist Barbara Collard" in at least one obituary, but it wasn't even made plain whether or not she had survived him.)
