Books Info:

The Millstone free pdf "This tale of sexual liberation in the swinging 60s retains its power to provoke". (Observer). It is now available for the first time in eBook. Rosamund Stacey has always been marked by a strange mixture of confidence and cowardice. A fiercely dedicated and resilient young woman, her future promises a fulfilling career despite the challenges of being a budding academic in sixties London. Yet in matters of love, she has been gripped by a deep-rooted, secret fear - of knowing someone physically. But when she finally overcomes these fears, she finds herself pregnant after a one-night stand. Rosamund decides to keep the baby, facing society's prejudice as a single mother - and is transformed in the process. First published in 1965, Margaret Drabble's third novel The Millstone, winner of the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize, confirmed her as one of the most striking writers of the 1960s.
