Overview

The Swifts—three sisters of marked eccentricity, defiantly christened April, May, and baby June, and their only brother, one-eyed Jasper—have little in common but some vivid memories of their darling mother and a long lost youth particularly prone to acts of treachery. Into their world comes cousin Leda from Vienna, a visitor from the past, blind but beguiling. Within days, the lifestyle of the Swifts has been dramatically overturned—and desires, dormant for so long, flame fierce and bright like never before. Molly Keane also wrote under the pen name M.J. Farrell; among her many timeless novels are The Knight of Cheerful Countenance, Conversation Piece, Devoted Ladies, and Good Behavior.
