To obtain what he considers is his by right, the elder brother sets in train a series of events that lead to tragedy for most of the characters involved. Desperate to get his hands on not only the house and land but also his brother's wife, he lies and cheats his way through to his goal, leaving a trail of disaster in his wake.
He appears to have no redeeming features and the reader feels great sympathy for his widowed mother and for the other characters who get in his way. Sal, the grieving widow, is sympathetically portrayed. She is a strong character who stands by her delightful daughter-in-law, Louise, but is powerless to help her in her times of trouble.

The plot moves swiftly and although some of the events are unpleasant there is no gratuitous violence involved. This is an exciting and enjoyable read. Kirkus UK. Help Centre.
