KIRKUS REVIEW

Mettlesome melodrama of the early 19th century in a story of a night at an English inn, the Fleece, whose new owner is will Oakley, ex-sailor. His daughter, Harriet, efficient, precise, hideously pockmarked, holds a tight rein over family and staff; his other daughter, Myrtle, lovely and useless, is in love with aristocratic Roger. Into the picture comes a figure from the past, set on blackmail, bringing violence and high emotions. Norah Lofts once again successfully recaptures a mood of place and times; she tells a good story.
