Historical mystery in which a young woman, Evelyn Gillford, defies stereotypes and male prejudice to work as a lawyer in post WWW II Britain. While defending a seemingly hopeless murder case suspect she discovers clues leading to the real murderer. However the mystery element is just a small part of the story as the family relationships and Evelyn's budding romance play an equally important role. An important part of the story evolves around this plot thread: Evelyn, still living at home and supporting her upper middle class very proper British family opens her front door one morning to discover a nurse with her son, whom she claims is Evelyn's dead war hero brother's son. Could be the first in a series.
