Revenge (n.) 1. The act of retaliation for injury received. 2. The desire for vengeance
The McHarg family may be unconventional, but Millicent, an eccentric and forthright novelist, is adored by her three granddaughters and her daughter-in-law Maria. With Millicent's son working abroad, the three generations are very close, and the girls from quiet, talented Plumpet to her adopted sister, Maya, rescued as a baby from the danger of her eastern homeland to become part of the family, are protected and happy. But on Christmas morning Plumpet is found assaulted and dazed in her own bed. In one night the McHargs' lives are irrevocably changed as Plumpet's pain brings out their hidden emotions and deepest fears. And as new memories and old secrets reveal more about the mystery of that night, Millicent prepares to take revenge. . .
A tale of family bonds and how far people will go to protect those they love, this is the compelling new novel from Mary Stanley, bestselling author of Retreat and Missing.
