Two timeperiods in this book....one in the 1970's and one during the Victorian Age....both involving the same house. I saw character parallel between the two times: Isabel Thorley, strong female during Victorian Age, and Jill Spender, strong female on the 1970's. This sequel saw demise in the Victorian marriages of Isabel's girls. Deborah Thorley Bridges became a writer on her own, developing into a self-sufficient female. The relationship which never physically materialized between Jill Spender and her neighbor was beautifully written by Norah Lofts. There were issues in the latter part of the novel that I didn't grasp, namely the seemingly parallel between the house evil and the neighbor's dog.
