Although this novel is set in the fifties, it reminded me of the Gothic romantic novels of the Victorian Era. The atmosphere is sinister, and the heroine, Norah Faulkner, in true Jane Eyre tradition, is a young woman left alone in the world.

Anyone who is a fan of Winston Graham would love this book. I couldn't stop reading it. It was full of excitement, suspense, romance.It kind of reminded me of an old fashioned melodrama. Of all the male authors I've read Winston Graham is probably the best at writing for female characters.

Love Winston Graham. Not as good as Marnie or The Walking Stick but still an enjoyable read.
