'The obsessive love of a middle-aged man for a young girl is at the centre of Susan Hill's haunting story. But Air and Angels is far more than that. Against the background of India, the East Anglia coast and Cambridge she sets a richly varied cast of characters, eccentric, pathetic and fallible: an undergraduate forced into a loveless marriage, an old woman desperate for affection, the waifs and strays of Imperial England.'
