The Quick and the Dead

By Marcia Willett

It’s really the house that Clarissa falls in love with.

A beautiful Tudor manor standing in the oak woodlands in the Welsh marches. Marrying Thomas is the only way to get it. And he’s pleasant enough. Besides, her biological clock is ticking.

Sharing the house with her are Thomas’s eccentric aunts (along with various ghosts), who have a firm idea of how things should be done. And when it begins to look as though Clarissa isn’t quite the reliable guardian they had hoped for, Olwen and Gwyneth take steps to preserve their inheritance…

Marcia Willett’s The Quick and the Dead¬†offers a whole new interpretation of ‘family values’. Blackly comic but with an engaging lightness of touch, it will amuse and intrigue.
