It is 1952 and Ellen Kingsley, an intelligent and beautiful young scientist, has just landed a prime job in scientific research at Gildersleve Hall, Cambridge, under the renowned scientist Marcus Pharaoh. Among the scientists working at Gildersleve, Ellen meets the rather dashing Alec Hunter, the chic Frenchwoman Andree Fournier and the rather taciturn Bryan Redmond, all of whom have been personally chosen by the very charismatic, but manipulative and egocentric Pharaoh. Before long Ellen finds herself becoming very attracted to the darkly handsome Alec but when she sees him in an embrace with Andree, she realizes that Alec is not for her. And besides, she has other things to occupy her, not least the unwelcome attentions of Marcus Pharaoh, who does not react well when Ellen politely lets him know that she is not interested in him. When a member of the scientific team is found dead at the foot of the stairs after a heated argument with Pharaoh, Ellen becomes suspicious and reports her suspicions to John Riley, a policeman who is investigating the death. Riley, affable, attractive and devoted to his job, can find no evidence that Pharaoh was involved in his colleague's death and Ellen thinks that is the end of the matter, but shortly after the police have finished their enquiries, Pharaoh sacks Ellen telling her that she is not suited for the work at Gildersleve Hall.

Ellen moves to London, finds work in a hospital and by chance she meets up with an old school friend, India Mayhew, and her brother, Sebastian. India is beautiful, but damaged, and when Marcus Pharaoh, who is speaking at a conference in London, is introduced to her, he is utterly captivated and determined to win her heart.

Format: Paperback
The Turning Point opens in 1952, when Ellen Kingsley takes a scientific appointment at the mysterious Gildersleve Hall; there she comes into contact with the enigmatic Marcus Pharaoh, a distinguished scientist, who is as bold as he is dangerous. Caught up in tragedy, Ellen is forced to make some difficult decisions, and her future, once assured, suddenly starts to look uncertain, as secrets from the past threaten the future.

Easy to read from the opening page, this is one of those lovely books that you can just curl up with and read without having to think too hard about convoluted motive, plot or malice. The story is nicely told, the characters are likeable without any one overshadowing the other, and the fine attention to detail really makes the story flow along, so that you become immersed in the lives of Ellen, India and Marcus.

I am always comfortable reading a Judith Lennox novel; she is a talented story teller and with consummate ease draws the reader into a believable world.

enjoyable but not perhaps one of her best books. I only read it a few weeks ago but cannot recall the storyline, which is unusual for me; the one I read previously, Catching the Tide, was more memorable by far.

I look forward to reading each Judith Lennox book, I even save them for holiday time so I can dedicate time to read them with few interruptions. There is always a slight sense of trepidation as I first start to read when I hope I will not be disappointed and no I wasn't with The Turning Point. I found it one of the easiest books to get into and gripped by of all Judith Lennox books. I find the stories well researched especially as I usually have experienced the places she writes about.

Judith always writes about interesting independent women and with roles and experiences so connected to the period.

I am looking forward to the next story, thank you Judith.

I am a fan of Judith Lennox but was disappointed with this. The characters were more superficial and the storyline did not hang together well

In the autumn of 1952, young scientist Ellen Kingsley is thrilled to be joining as a research assistant at the prestigious Gildersleve Hall in Cambridgeshire. Here she is a part of an elect group of scientists led by the enigmatic Marcus Pharaoh; yet there are undercurrents, tensions and rivalries bubbling beneath the surface at Gildersleve that Ellen is at first blind to. However, when she discovers the dead body of colleague Dr Redmond her time at Gildersleve comes to an abrupt conclusion. Ellen later tries to forge a new career for herself in London, yet it seems that her time at Gildersleve cannot be so easily erased from memory as first she bumps into Pharaoh again, then another former colleague the dashing Alec Hunter. It is when her adventurous and beguiling friend India Mayhew becomes caught up with Pharaoh, however, that old secrets come spilling out; and the truth is finally revealed.

The Turning Point makes for an intriguing read, intricately weaving together multiple story threads and characters that seem to connect together quite flawlessly. At times it may seem like the story has changed direction and is heading another way, however, everything comes together in the end, unsolved mysteries and unanswered questions finally revealed.

This is very much a character driven story, Lennox not only painting a vivid picture of her characters, their strengths and weaknesses, their vulnerabilities, but also sometimes delving into complex backstories that help give further layers to her characters and enable the reader to truly get beneath their skin, understand what really drives them and what their darkest most fears are.
