"The Houses In Between is ostensibly an autobiography covering a ling period - an informal chronicle of events, national and personal, as they affected the lives of a large number of people.  In this case the narrator is an old lady who can look back over nearly a century.  Her earliest recollection was of a visit to the Crystal Palace at the time of the Great Exhibition in Hyde park.  She lived to celebrate her ninety-ninth birthday.  'She was spry enough then.'
As the central figure of this long and eventful novel, the old lady could not be bettered.  It is, in every sense, a family novel."
