Mary Wesley's timeless novel, now available as a digital audio download
While travelling on a train, Sylvester Wykes sees a woman leap from the carriage to rescue a stranded sheep. He glimpses a face that is white with tragedy; that image lodges in his mind and forms the seed of a splendid drama of love and fate. Told with a perfect sweetness and cynicism, rich in character and malicious wit, this is one of Wesley's most intelligent and intensely moving novels.
