(The second book in the Summerhouse Trilogy series)
A novel by Alice Thomas Ellis
Looking in the mirror, old Mrs. Munro could see no trace of the girl whose life she had been reliving..Mrs. Munro's time is running out, but this does not trouble her; she is tired of life and finds the thought of death exhilarating. And now her one anxiety has gone, for Syl, her only son, has decided to marry. Margaret, his bride to be, seems the perfect girl - obedient, disciplined, undemanding. Then Lili, a wedding guest (and a skeleton from Mrs. Munro's own cupboard) reveals to her the secret horror in Margaret's past.
