The first Francis Brett Young I have read - and the first of many I hope

This novel written in 1942 - is about two middle aged sisters who come to live at North Bromich in their family home with their elderly father. Upon his death they find it difficult to make ends meet. At this point s timely bequest comes their way in the shape of a villa and estate in Italy from a disreputable uncle who died intestate. They are met by Salvatore - their new butler who helps them manage their estate - but whose family once many years before owned the land themselves. Salvatore is a younger handsome man, and quickly makes himself indespensible to Agnes in particular. Ellen the younger sister is unsettled by him, and hears things from another local Englishman which worry her further.

I have to say I loved every page of this book, and could hardly put it down. ( )
