Her novels now enjoy a devoted following and belated recognition as classics of the British comic novel.

In The Sweet Dove Died, first published in 1978, she sardonically uncovers the sometimes troubling truths behind relationships. A chance encounter over a Victorian flower book brings together Humphrey, an antique dealer, James, his nephew, and Leonora. Although she is considerably older, Leonora develops a fondness for James. Shes determined to keep him under her spell, until she realizes that she has to contend with the bookish Phoebe.

When Ned, a wicked young American, appears on the scene, the book begins to live up to its droll title, taken from John Keats.
