From the author of the bestselling Jalna series! Writing in isolation was never trickier than in this full house.

In this short but poignant tale, Mazo de la Roche tells the story of a small boy from an orphan home who has come to work for two sisters — Mrs Morton and Lydia Dove — who are, in old age, suffering greatly reduced circumstances. They have rented out half of their house to a writer, Lindley, who has sought out this isolated spot for the writing of a novel.

However, the seclusion promised him is broken by strange and frightening events. The sisters’ struggle over the boy, Lindley’s love for the boy, his efforts to keep himself aloof for the writing of his book, are related by Mazo de la Roche with that complete belief in her characters which makes them live for the reader.
