Vera

by Elizabeth von Arnim

Unbearably alone since his wife Vera's recent and mysterious death, Everand Wemyss is irresistibly drawn to Lucy, a young woman left vulnerable after the death of her father. Taking charge of the funeral for Lucy and her spinster Aunt Dot, Wemyss begins to commandeer Lucy herself - body and soul. Soon Lucy believes herself in love, and Wemyss is obsessed with the idea of making her his wife. Virile, well-to-do, sensual, Wemyss should be a catch, but Aunt Dot senses disturbing qualities in him...
