The Clock Winder
By the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Amateur Marriage.
Having sacked her handyman, newly-widowed Mrs Emerson finds a replacement in Elizabeth, a lanky, awkward girl.

But in the end it is hard to tell whether she is a victim of the needy Emersons, or the de facto ruler of the family.
