About the Book

First published in 1970, Lovers in War was the third of a quartet of novels by Colin Spencer concerning the Simpson family. This volume finds brother and sister Matthew and Sundy Simpson suffering fresh emotional turmoil. Sundy has divorced her philandering husband, Reg, and is living with Jamey Best-David, whose Catholic wife will not grant him a divorce. Matthew, resisting the homosexual world to which he feels drawn, has married his boyhood sweetheart, Jane. But when Reg resurfaces, both Matthew and Sundy succumb again to his incorrigible charm.


This Faber Finds edition includes a new preface by Colin Spencer wherein he reflects on 'how the ethics of loving, its agonies and joys, are so unchanged'.
