Product description

Spending the holiday with friends, as she has for many years, Camilla finds that their private absorptions - Frances with her painting and Liz with her baby - seem to exclude her from the gossipy intimacies of previous summers. Anxious that she will remain encased in her solitary life as a school secretary, Camilla steps into an unlikesly liaison with Richard Elton, a handsome, assured - and dangerous - liar.

Review quote

Elizabeth Taylor's darkest novel ... She writes with a sensuous richness of language that draws the reader down the most shadowy paths ... Extremely beguiling. Taylor makes the living moment present, touchable, disturbing, enchanting Helen Dunmore Taylor is a fearsome writer, ruthless in her examination of solitude, and a sparkling chronicler of ordinary lives DAILY TELEGRAPH
