Description

In a story of wide and fascinating detail A. J. Cronin tells of Dr. David Morey who tries to atone for his desertion of the woman he loved.

Beguiled by the prospect of riches he goes on to marry Dottie, a spoiled but beautiful neurotic who brings him almost constant misery, until a chance remark makes him seek retribution in memories of the past and a return to his native Scotland.

In the magnificent narrative tradition of The Citadel, The Stars Look Down and Cronin's other classic novels, The Judas Tree is a great book by a much-loved author.
