180 pp, 8vo (8" H). Second (and last) novel by this Canadian author who died before either of her books was published. "Set in the deceptively gracious atmosphere of British Columbia's West Coast climate and society, (it) is a story of complicated human relations, yet fast-paced and taut with drama and suspense. A strange marriage settlement that provides for the care of her son takes a penniless young widow, Arden Calcott, from a dreary London office to a life of luxury in the Vancouver Island home of her new husband, Dr. Alex Lamond. But it is a life of curious unease. Undercurrents of Alex's strange family relationships swirl about Arden and exert a malignant pull as they widen to include Dr. Monica Cosgrove, the first Mrs. Alex Lamond - ." Dust jacket has very light edgewear, very light wrinkling at top/bottom of front flap, small tear with creases at top of front hinge - archivally taped, minor rubbing soiling on rear panel.
