This book contains Dame Rose Macaulay's 1921 novel, "Dangerous Ages". A young writer with a sizeable family returns to college as a way to spend her free time, but finds that she is perhaps not as sharp as she once was. Sick of her chaotic family, she decides to settle down, but realizes that her boyfriend was no longer willing to wait and has fallen for someone else... and her own niece, no less. Struggling with all the commitments that come with a large family, she endeavors to put her life back together again. Many vintage books such as this were becoming increasingly scarce or expensive. This volume is now republished in an available, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction.
