(From the publisher):
Stella has it all – looks, intelligence and an undergraduate place at Cambridge, not to mention Gemini, her fervent admirer at Oxford. Stella and Gemini, the two babes of the story, come increasingly under the influence of a rather impressive psycho-therapeutist whose groundbreaking theories capture their imaginations. But when tragedy strikes they are soon to learn that intellectualism brings cold comfort.
Babes in Darkling Wood is not only a powerful story of changing fortunes, but also provides an exacting dialogue of the advances in psychoanalytical theory.
