Publisher's Summary

When her goddaughter is arrested, Isabel Vernon is startled to discover that the child of her memory has become an overweight, shaven-headed environmentalist and that Isabel herself is now regarded as Emily Frost's next of kin. Emily is then released on bail to the Vernons in the villlage of Fordswick. But her presence in the Vernons' house proves troubling, and is deepening the tensions already within it.


What the Critics Say

"Captivating and full-bodied." (Library Journal)
"Even after the final quiet twist, you'll be wishing you could spend more time among Yorke's dexterously skewered misfits." (Kirkus Reviews)
