About the book
It is a fire in a New Hampshire hotel that brings Nicholas van Tassel and Etna Bliss together – two strangers grateful to have escaped the burning building with their lives. Many years later he recounts their courtship and their time together.

Very animated discussion. Enjoyed the style, found ourselves gripped. some loved it, some hated it. Although finding the characters unsympathetic we generally agreed that it was a well written study of ambition, secrecy and obsession.
