The first novel by Edmund Blunden's wife, this novel, according to the dust jacket is "the history of a lovers' suicide in a medieval castle [which] has so influenced its present lodgers that each one, bound by a different tie to this tradition, finds in it the reason of his stay. Suggestion, nerves, and the clash of varied personalities lead a modern couple to believe their destiny entangled with the old. Disillusionment comes suddenly and with diverse and amusing effects. Ironically, the consequent adjustment leads them back to a position that is virtually unchanged."
