PREFACE BY HARRIET EVANS
Because of the Lockwoods
DOROTHY WHIPPLE
The penultimate, 1949 novel by our bestselling author is the eighth book by her we have published.The story is deceptively simple: the entanglement of two families in a northern town called Aldworth.‘A fascinating demonstration of what a sensitive intelligence combined with a developed talent can

do with the most ordinary material.The novel is mature, unusual, and consistently interesting’ (the New York Times); and the Chicago Tribune reviewer said:‘This is the best new novel I have read in many a day. It has the qualities which matter most in fiction – relentless truth and never failing compassion.’
