The Logans were an enchanting and admirable couple. Archie had snatched
Liza from her own engagement party to someone else, wooed her, swept her
off to his father in Scotland, and finally married her. Now bedded firmly
into country life-three children, Archie the village doctor, Liza a
teacher, everything comfortable, funny, affectionate, --they awaited the
arrival of Archie's father, the brilliant Sir Andrew Logan, a widower for
over thirty years. When his city-clean Rover stopped in the drive, Sir
Andrew was not alone. Beside him was a golden lady in caramel suede, a
warm, witty, desirable widow whom everyone--except Archie--adored at once.
Archie saw his father's mistress as the worm in the bud of his perfect life
--a life that was to be wrenched apart before he and Liza could re-create
their world.
