From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Mary Aline Mynors Farmar (June 24, 1912 - December 30, 2002), better known as Mary Wesley, was a British novelist.

Wesley was born in Berkshire.

Mary Wesley became an author late in life after the death of her husband left her near impoverishment. She wrote two books for children before moving on to writing adult fiction. Her take on life reveals a sharp and critical eye which neatly dissects the idiosyncrasies of middle-class England with humour, compassion and irony, detailing in particular sexual and emotional values.

Her best known book, The Camomile Lawn, set in the Roseland Peninsula in Cornwall, was turned into a television series, and is an account of the intertwining lives of three families in rural England during World War II.

She died in Totnes, Devon.
