Challenge was Vita Sackville-West's second novel. It was ready to go to print in 1920, but the author suddenly changed her mind for fear of the scandal it would cause. Vita's love affair with Violet Trefusis had reached its peak and they decided to abandon everything - children and husbands included - to elope to France. They returned to their families eventually, but Challenge remains a testament to their love. All of her writings reflect the same unhurried approach, deep reflection, and brilliantly polished style.
