‘Bubbles with plots, counter-plots, mystery and romance’
From the Back Cover
When a stranger enters a family, what becomes of old values?
Lois enjoys a privileged rural lifestyle: happily married, with two well-adjusted sons, she's the pillar of the community: she lacks nothing.
Wendy, her urban sister, seems equally fortunate: for her there is satisfying work, a man she may marry, a whirl of parties – and, of course, stress.
What neither expects is Oliver, a proud, enigmatic young beggar, befriended by Lois, from pitty (she thinks); and taken up by Wendy, from curiosity (she thinks).
But what does Oliver think of 'them'? What makes Oliver run? Above all, what dark secrets from his past is he hiding?
From the author of 'Old Money, Profit and Loss, Trophy Wife' and 'Worlds Apart' comes an engrossing novel with undertones of a psychological thriller.
