Intriguing plot, well read

This is the only book at Audible by Teresa Crane, and I hope there will be more. It will not be satisfying for those who are squeamish about incest or emotional manipulation in relationships, or who are expecting more intrigue and less history and geography. However, the primary character is presented sympathetically, even though by today's standards, she is naive. If you appreciate the constraints placed on middle-class women in England in the early 1920's, you will find the protagonist's psychological needs compelling, and you will understand how she is drawn into two mysteries she faces.
