Abstract:

Michael is wealthy, decent, boring and locked into the routine of working as Secretary to his gentleman's club in Mayfair, or else stalking deer on his estate in Perthshire. Elizabeth has married him - not exactly for his money, but not exactly for love, either. Their marriage is passionless and monotonous. Dreary weeks are spent in the dank and gloomy house in a Scottish glen that Michael inherited from his parents. Then, on a visit to friends in Ireland, something appears to trigger a change in Michael's behaviour. On the way back, Elizabeth tells herself: 'There was something different about Michael'. And there is: life with Michael suddenly becomes so much more fun ... and Elizabeth sees glimpses of a man she could finally fall in love with. But who - or what is changing Michael? Who is the girl on the landing? And what does she want ...
