"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Pamela Oldfield's books have been translated into Spanish, German and Russian. Her adult novels are described as a blend of historical fiction and family saga, each one thoroughly researched with the help of her husband, Joseph, who photographs and videos the various locations necessary for the backgrounds.From Booklist:
Oldfield's saga of one family's tortured relationships is set in 1930s London and the rural English countryside. The Dengauls are as dysfunctional as they come. Behind the patrician facade of Highstead, the family's country estate, simmers a volatile brew of sibling rivalry, infertility, adultery, mental instability and terminal illness. Enter Kate Harper, the young and beautiful widow who is to marry Highstead's master, the aging widower and well-known crime novelist Robert Dengaul, but not before his grown children have something to say about it. Kate is as pure of heart as Dengaul's offspring are devious and spoiled, and her initiation into the Dengaul family is a harrowing journey. Yet in the end, Oldfield brings the family to a state, however unlikely, of equilibrium. Suzanne Young
