The Solitary Child

(1956)
A novel by

 
 
The Solitary Child is a story of violent death and suspicion. Harriet becomes engaged to James Random, a gentleman farmer, monied but unpretentious. But his first wife, Eva, had died in what were called 'unforgettable circumstances'; James was charged with murdering her and was acquitted. Breaking the news to her mother of her engagement was Harriet's first ordeal: facing Maggie, the solitary child who was James' and Eva's daughter was more complex. Suspicions are not always cleared away by a verdict of 'not guilty'. Here the suspicion which Harriet found surrounding her new home was so oppressive it distorted the relationships of the people involved into a nightmare climax.
