On a damp dreary day in the 1950's, when home nurse Coral Glynn arrives at a remote English mansion to care for its dying matriarch, Mrs. Hart, she meets Mrs. Hart's lonely war-wounded son, Major Hart, who desires her company, and housekeeper Mrs. Pence, who does not. Solitary walks in the nearby forest are a welcomed pastime, until unpleasantness ensues. Soon after, the hope of marriage is complicated by a mysterious murder, a missing ring, misplaced letters, secrets and misunderstandings. We feel for our often unsure characters as they muddle through this beautifully told, curiously compelling and surprising story. (Susan R., Reader's Services)

Chuck "Pence" might actually have been a more appropriate surname for the housekeeper, but actually it is "Prence".
