From the bestselling author of Room comes a delicious tale of secrets, betrayal and forbidden love After a separation of many years, Emily ?Fido? Faithfull bumps into her old friend Helen Codrington on the streets of Victorian London. Much has changed: Helen is more and more unhappy in her marriage to the older Vice-Admiral Codrington, while Fido has become a successful woman of business and a pioneer in the British Women?s Movement. But, for all her independence of mind, Fido is too trusting of her once-dear companion and finds herself drawn into aiding Helen?s obsessive affair with a young army officer. Then, when the Vice-Admiral seizes the children and sues for divorce, the women?s friendship unravels amid accusations of adultery and counter-accusations of cruelty and attempted rape, as well as a mysterious ?sealed letter? that could destroy more than one life . . .
