He is a forty-four-year-old widower; the father of two fully-grown daughters - Myrtle and Harriet - who also help their father run the inn.

A strange, motley compan ...more

Historical fiction at its best!!! Fine details of place and time, characters whose relationships and psychology are memorable and fascinating, and a deeply powerful story of family loyalty and conflict, blackmail and murder. I have loved novels by Norah Lofts since I was 14, and I've read this one many times. I highly recommend this book, and other books by her.
