Publisher's Summary

Secretly treasured memories of her eccentric grandmother’s Tuscan house are very special for Carrie Stowe; for not only do they recall the happy childhood summers before the Great War, they are her only escape from the suffocating routine of her life with Arthur, her repressive husband.

When she unexpectedly inherits the house, Arthur, predictably, insists it be sold. But while disposing of the effects, Carrie is drawn to an enigmatic young man embarked on an ideological quest….

    "Intriguing plot, well read"

    This is the only book at Audible by Teresa Crane, and I hope there will be more. It will not be satisfying for those who are squeamish about incest or emotional manipulation in relationships, or who are expecting more intrigue and less history and geography. However, the primary character is presented sympathetically, even though by today's standards, she is naive. If you appreciate the constraints placed on middle-class women in England in the early 1920's, you will find the protagonist's psychological needs compelling, and you will understand how she is drawn into two mysteries she faces.
