When Helen’s father dies, she more than welcomes the care of her father’s old friend Roger Trelawnce. She even gets to stay at his lovely manor in Cornwall. Yet her feelings for him soon evolve and become something else entirely. When she discovers, to her shock, that there also happens to be a Mrs. Valerie Trelawnce, matters become terribly complicated. What on earth should she do? The 20th-century love story was written by Pamela Kent, a pseudonym of the beloved romance writer Ida Pollock.
