KIRKUS REVIEW

Some extroverted emotions and a familiar flourish for the story of Ann Ambros, whose doe-eyes concealed a lifetime of deliberate destruction to those around her, a lifetime now in full recall after she is pushed off the platform of a train by her stepdaughter, Joy. From the time when at fifteen Ann had fallen in love with the famous violinst, Florian Ambros, she had let nothing stand in her way- not even his marriage to her older sister in whose death she had been instrumental. Marrying Florian, she later drives him to suicide, ruins Joy's chance at marriage, and is now bent on breaking up her son's home when Joy intervenes, and, for her brother's sake, tries to kill her... The expected largesse of decor and drama, for the expected audience.
