Description

Elsie Tyler is young, charismatic and beautiful, attractive to both men and women. For Elsie, life is fun and love is simple. She is too naive to comprehend the darker side of the human heart, too innocent to recognise the nature of obsession. She won't understand the true feelings that Ralph and Jack have for her - or the increasingly destructive side of passion and jealousy - until it is too late.show more
