First Impressions

This week's competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, is from a tale of English snobbery and a rural legacy:

" One may as well begin with Helen's letters to her sister ..."

The winner receives a £20 book token and
the closing date is July 6.

Entries should be sent to
First Impressions
Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield
