Learn More about the Book
The Logans were an enchanting and admirable couple. Archie had snatched Liza from her own engagement party to someone else, wooed her, swept her off to his father in Scotland, and finally married her. Now bedded firmly into country life-three children, Archie the village doctor, Liza a teacher, everything comfortable, funny, affectionate, they awaited the arrival of Archie's father, the brilliant Sir Andrew Logan, a widower for over thirty years.
When his city-clean Rover stopped in the drive, Sir Andrew was not alone. Beside him was a golden lady in caramel suede, a warm, witty, desirable widow whom everyone except Archie adored at once. Archie saw his father's mistress as the worm in the bud of his perfect life a life that was to be wrenched apart before he and Liza could re-create their world."
