Time After Time
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, save 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: a thrilling guest. Within days, the lifestyle of the Swifts has been dramatically overturned -- and desires, dormant for so long, flame fierce and bright like never before. Book jacket.
