Eustace and Hilda completes the 'Eustace and Hilda' trilogy, of which the first two novels are: The Shrimp and the Anemone and The Sixth Heaven. Each of the three is capable of standing alone, but together they carry forward the story of Eustace and his sister Hilda, who appear as children in The Shrimp and the Anemone, through the drama of their grown-up lives. The story has 'a complex, bitter-sweet charm, playful and pensive, humorous and fantastic, tender and mysterious: and touched now and again with a pathos, born of the author's sense, wistful, ironical, compassionate, of the contrast between man's immortal longings and his mortal weakness'.
