Description: Two sisters: Madeleine and Dinah. One husband: Rickie Masters. For many years now, Dinah, exotic and sensual, has conducted a clandestine affair with Rickie. Madeleine, calm and resolute, has accepted that her marriage has been of limited success. Rickie’s sudden death makes widows of both sisters in this highly imaginative novel which explores with extraordinary insight the sublimity, the rivalry and the pain of personal relationships.
I think I need more of Lehmann’s oeuvre.
