In this novel, set in an ancient and brooding English castle, Pearls S. Buck once more displays her extraordinary versatility.
On the surface it is a spellbinding tale of the determination of a wealthy young American to buy an old castle from the impoverished aristocrats who won it He then plans to move it stone by stone t his estate in Connecticut, there to huse a great collection of Renaissance art.
The intensity of his ambition is matched by the shocked reluctance of Sir Richard Sedgeley and Lady Mary to see thier heritage dismantled, scene of a proud and noble past. The role of sympathetic mediator falls to the lovely girl, Kate, who is ostensibly a servant in the castle, granddaughter of th eelderly butler Wells. The reader soon learns that she is far more than simple maid.
