Two sisters, one house and a lifetime of secrets...

Set on a Cornish cliff, buffeted by centuries of Atlantic storms, the Carew family's holiday house has housed smugglers and redcoats, clergyman and whores. For over one hundred years this prestigious home has been the jewel in the family crown and been paid for by the family business - Carew Classic Board Games.

Each generation has taken its job of caretaking seriously. Passed from father to son until the male line died out and two daughters were left to inherit.
Ally - petite, kittenish and a marriage wrecker. She is unafraid to use her arsenal of sexual tricks to get what she wants.
Dede - tall and willowy, shy and unassuming. Men long to protect and possess her.

The two sisters are as different as vinegar and honey and their years of simmering resentments and sibling rivalry are about to reach boiling point. Both women want the house for themselves and both are determined that nothing, nothing will stand in their way...

When re-releasing this book please be aware that airports are not a good place to leave books unless they have a specific book exchange shelf or area, due to security problems, so they may well just be disposed of.

**** Also charity shops may well discard books that have been labelled in any way and they mostly chose only the books in the very best condition to place on their shelves and discard the rest-so another bad release option. ****
