'Mistress of the skilfully spun suspense novel' Sunday Telegraph

Nesta Falconer, an attractive widow, lives with her fifteen-year-old daughter Philippa, managing brother-in-law Charles Falconer's household after the breakdown of his marriage. Nesta's comfortable position is threatened when her sister Claire, returning from America, comes to stay at her cottage.
