THE IVY TREE BY MARY STEWART
Matthew Winslow depended on his great-nephew, Connor, for the running of Whitescar, the manor farm, but was obstinately determined to leave it to his two granddaughters. This to Connor seemed both stupid and unjust, for Julie lived in London and Annabel . . . Annabel had been dead four years.
The story opens when a young woman calling herself Annabel Winslow comes "home" to Whitescar - a spark into the powder-keg of Con's ambition.
This is the sixth novel by the author of MADAM WILL YOU TALK?, WILDFIRE AT MIDNIGHT, THUNDER ON THE RIGHT, NINE COACHES WAITING AND MY BROTHER MICHAEL.
