Publisher's Summary

The Norfolk marshes. A winter storm. A woman is missing, a beautiful and virtuous woman with no enemies.

Alexandra O'Neill, lawyer to petty criminals, is drawn back to the village where she grew up to help Will Dearden find his paragon of a wife.

But can any wife be so perfect that she doesn't have secrets? And can a devoted husband have failed to see the truth?

©1997 Clare Francis (P)2007 Macmillan Publishers Ltd

Critic Reviews

"Evocative....The plot turns gracefully on domestic issues." ( The New York Times Book Review)
"Immensely pleasurable....Francis is a British treasure and deserves to be equally appreciated here." ( Chicago Tribune)
"A chilling and contemporary look at marriage, money, and ambition, and at a life in an English small town and many of the small-minded people who live there." (<>Dallas Morning News)
