In 1913, Dickie Bennett, whose family occupies a cottage on the Redfields country estate, is raped by Rupert and Frederick Redfield. Frederick feels remorse- Rupert, a tyrannical young man bereft of restraint or sensitivity, dismisses the episode. Dickie finds solace in her son, Max, a product of the rape, and in the certainty that the Redfield brothers must suffer for their barbarity. While Rupert viciously consolidates his power in the Redfield household, Dickie becomes a stunt pilot in New York. Aware that revenge upon the rich can only be undertaken by those of equal wealth, Dickie and her husband gain affluence by establishing a lucrative airline.

By 1929, they return to England, where tragedy awaits the Redfields and Dickie herself. Townleys lyrically expressed insights into human nature make the blustery confrontations and star-crossed love affairs that fill this story come alive. She effectively contrasts the English countrysides somnolence with the blazing emotions of its inhabitants.Copyright 1987 Reed Business Information, Inc.
