Abstract:

"The setting is a great house in Cornwall, which has been inherited by young Philip Ashley on the death of his uncle and surrogate father. Although deeply attached to his ancestral home, the uncle had gone to Rome, married a young Italian widow of short acquaintance, and then died under what his friends and family consider mysterious circumstances. When the widow, "cousin" Rachel, comes to visit Philip, she is received coolly at first, but her charm and grace, and the fact that she too comes from Cornish lineage, soon wins her friends -- and the ardent devotion of Philip himself. As his attraction for the alluring Rachel increases, Philip's health declines, and he is soon the victim of "Roman fever" himself"--Publisher's website.
