Prudence Dudley was a woman who appeared to have everything: an undeniably attractive woman who had already achieved considerable success as a novelist. Yet she remained at odds with life. It all stemmed from the past: her sad rejected childhood and the more recent past of a deeply wounding emotional crisis. Nearing a breakdown, she needed to sort herself out; and since nobody had ever proved so staunch and comforting a support in time of trouble as her Aunt Maggie, she fled to her company to spend three months at a rented cottage in the Lake District.
