Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Raised by resentful relatives, orphaned Ellen Kellaway is thrilled when a distant kinsman invites her to the family estate in Cornwall, little realizing that deception and danger—as well as love—await her. This classic by the writer who sparked the Gothic craze with the publication of Mistress of Mellyn (1960) should be in most collections. Victoria Holt (d. 1993) is a pseudonym for Eleanor Buford Hibbert; she wrote historical fiction as Jean Plaidy and Philippa Carr.
