    Although Ismay finds herself feeling intensely protective of her little sister and of the secret they share, their lives move placidly, even happily, forward. It seems as if the mysterious death of their stepfather is behind them. But when Heather becomes seriously involved with a man for the first time, Ismay's long-repressed memories can no longer be ignored. With painful inevitability, the surprising truth will emerge, whether Ismay wants it to or not.

    "Not Vine's best but still an excellent novel"
    Overall

    First, the reader is excellent. Second, the story is interesting. I'm a Barbara Vine fan. I know to expect strangeness to permeate every page. And generally I love her characters' eccentricities. However, I found that I never felt attached to any of the characters in this novel. So it dragged for me. The story lines in this novel were a bit confusing in the audio version, because the audio is edited to allow no pauses.
