A delightful and touching novel set in post-war summer of 1946 as three young women embark on the adult world.

This delightful novel describes the post-war summer of 1946 – and follows the growing-up of three young women in the months between leaving school and taking up their scholarships at university. Una Vane, whose widowed mother runs a hairdressing salon in her front room (‘Maison Vane Glory – Where Permanent Waves are Permanent’), goes bicycling with Ray, the boy who delivers the fish and milk. Hetty Fallowes struggles to become independent of her possessive, loving, tactless mother. And Lieselotte Klein, who had arrived in 1939 on a train from Hamburg, uncovers tragedy in the past and magic in the present. Rooted in the north of England, The Flight of the Maidens is peopled with extraordinary characters, who are evoked with all the humour, compassion and eye for detail that mark Jane Gardam as one of Britain’s most gifted and original novelists.

‘Jane Gardam, as ever, shapes her narrative with wit and aplomb … intelligent, inspiriting and entertaining.’
The Independent

‘As a celebration of the rites of passage it rings diamond true. It is light, witty, sharp, yet understanding and sympathetic. It is also thoroughly enjoyable.’
The Scotsman
