"Since his daughter's earliest childhood, Charles Upjohn's influence over Melissa had grown malignantly . . . and now, in her twenties, mourning her father's death, she was a pitiable recluse. . . . Yet deep within her . . . there was tenderness and an unselfish power to love.
Geoffrey Dunham, Charles Upjohn's publisher, recognized these qualities in the shy, awkward girl who shrank from his kindnesses and at times appeared even to hate him. . .
In an atmosphere charged with suspense, the naive girl, the strong and devoted Dunham, and his malevolent sister engage in a conflict of wills. . ."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
