Her father's houseUser Review - Book Verdict
As a young girl, Jennie Veryan finds refuge from the turmoil of World War II in her father's ancestral home, Trevellan, on the Cornish coast. There she adapts to her new life with the help of the estate agent's son, Mark. When Jennie and Mark fall in love, her tradition-bound family disapproves. Her aunt and cousin see her as a rival to take over Trevellan, and they scheme to break up the relationship and discredit Jennie. Separated from Mark by lies and misunderstandings, Jennie makes a life of her own as an artist, but she and Mark seem fated to cross paths, although always at the wrong time. After several tragedies and scandals, they are finally reunited and return to Trevellan. This book, which is an American debut for its pseudonymous British author, unfolds in rather episodic fashion. But fans of romantic family sagas should enjoy this story of tested and enduring love.--Barbara E. Kemp, SUNY at Albany Libs.
