Cassia Fallon has been married to her doctor husband for seven years when her godmother leaves her half a million pounds; at that time 1935, it's a vast fortune.Suddenly, for the first time in her life, she's able to do exactly what she wants; she starts to question her marriage, her past, present and future. And then more sinister questions arise about the origins of the legacy, but by now the legacy, part benign influence, part brutal force, is an all powerful entity all of its own - and one that Cassia cannot resist.

Review quote

Praise for the novels of Penny Vincenzi: ?A pacy page-turner with a storyline that will keep you guessing. Be ready with a box of tissues! "Family Circle" "Satisfaction guaranteed."?"The Washington Post Book World" ?Buy on a Friday, get home, turn off the phone and emerge on Monday replete with a tale well told. Guilty pleasures? We certainly all have them and this is better than most. "Daily Express" "It will draw you in, against your better judgment and keep you awake nights reading." ?"The Boston Globe" ?There's only one name that continues to reign supreme: Penny Vincenzi.? ?"Glamour"
