The Fountain Overflows by Rebecca West

This partly autobiographical novel tells the story of an Edwardian family, living in poverty due to the weakness of the father for gambling and speculation. Security and strength is provided by Rose's artistic mother who is fanatically devoted to a musical future for her daughters. The love of music and the talent for it is the only deliverance the girls can hope for.
Rebecca West was born in London.
