When Sir Ransom Chace is reunited with his god-daughter Bridget, and her husband Edmund Gaunt, long dead secrets start to creep out of the wood-work.

Chace and Gaunt both have two daughters borne out of happy marriages, but both have also fathered another daughter out of wedlock.

As aging Chace debates age, life, and morality with his best friend and two daughters, he realises he wants to clear his conscience before he dies.

Meanwhile the two young Gaunt daughters overhear a shocking secret about their parents relationship…

What happens when a dignified man comes to believe that his wife is also his daughter…?

Conveyed almost entirely in dialogue, Compton-Burnett’s novel was ground-breaking for its time, experimenting with style and content.
