The go-between by L. P Hartley( Book )

331 editions published between 1900 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 2,819 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the glowing English Summer of 1900, an impressionable boy of twelve went for a long visit to the home of one of his school friends. At this country house in Norfolk, he suffered the pangs of puppy love for Marian Maudsley, the adorable young lady of the family, and became deeply involved as unwitting go-between in her passionate love affair with a farmer in he neighborhood. Fifty years later, chancing upon some relics of that blazing Summer, he recalls that visit to Brandham Hall. And he tells the story of all that happened there -- a tale so engrossing, so dramatic, and withal so tender and so moving that you will turn each page with eagerness to read the next. And Mr. Hartley writes so beautifully that even if he did not have a first-rate story to tell, reading him would be an uncommonly rewarding and pleasurable experience

Overcome with grief at her husband's death, Lady Franklin, an eligible young widow, unburdens herself to Leadbitter - a gallant, hard-bitten ex-soldier who has invested his savings in the car he drives for hire - as he takes her on a series of journeys. He in turn beguiles her with stories of his non-existent wife and children, drawing her out of her self-absorption and weaving a dream-life with Lady Franklin at its heart. Half-hoping to make his dream come true, Leadbitter takes a bold, not to say reckless, step which costs him dearly, and brings these characters' tangled story to a dramatic and unexpected conclusion
