LoveReading Expert Review of Windfall

Set in the 1930s, this is a delight from start to finish. Cassia is a very normal housewife, married to a parochial doctor when she inherits a mysterious half a million pounds.

Her descent is gorgeously plotted and the mystery of where the money came from utterly compelling.

But where did her legacy really come from. and why? Too soon the windfall has become a corrupting force. One that Cassia cannot resist...
