From the cover: It was not fair. Nicola Maude seemed to have everything already: looks, intelligence, charm, prospects of a wealthy inheritance and the love of all who knew her. And then she won handsome, sophisticated Hugh Jarvis for her fiance. Had she been granted too much happiness? Some vengeful destiny seemed to think so. Some relentless Nemesis who stalked the winding, leafy lanes of Hampshire, hungry for justice and who struck with a road accident which left Hugh dead and Nico a helpless cripple, A Nemesis whose ever watchful presence only Alice, Nices devoted mother, knew of. Only Alice knew the truth, but she was powerless to prove it.
Alice to whom life most certainly had not been fair. After a dutiful girlhood she had fallen wonderfully in love with and married a young parson, and soon a little daughter had entered their lives but after her husband was tragically killed, Alice had found herself a widow at twenty-nine. And now she and Nico lived alone in a cramped cottage, forever dependent upon the generosity of her glamorous older sister Vi and Vis rich, elderly husband.
Alice knew the meaning of unfairness and what it could do to you. So when fortune smiles anew on Nico and she becomes engaged to a long-standing admirer, Alices fears for her daughters safety intensify: Nemesis would surely strike again
From the bestselling author of Mother Love, a shocking, psychologically complex novel about the depths of human bitterness and the monstrous redressing of a terrible injustice.
