Summer before the War, by Helen Simonson
Simonson paints a pre-World War II England where it sucks to be a single woman, gay man or woman, gypsy, refugee, or less than wealthy person. Beatrice Nash is hired to teach Latin at a grammar school in Rye, and becomes involved in the lives of the community's upper crust.
