Helga Radford, child of an English aristocrat and a German governess, comes to Gales Hill at her dying father's request to seek reconciliation with his estranged family. Helga struggles to become loving and dutiful towards her autocratic grandmother but she is unfamiliar with English ways and is an easy target for those who resent her coming. There are stares, whispers, lies and finally accusations which threaten to destroy her. Set in mid-nineteenth century Northern England, this tale of seething, violent passions makes gripping reading.
