About the Author

Born in Ireland in 1904 into a 'rather serious Hunting and Fishing Church-going family' who gave her little education at the hands of governesses, Molly's interests were 'hunting & horses & having a good time'; she began writing only to supplement her dress allowance. She died in 1996.


Keane's 1981 novel also features a self-destructive family. Behind their faade of aristocratic morals and good bahavior, the Anglo-Irish St. Charles family are a clan of jealous, greedy, sex-obsessed brutes. A bit of a soap opera, this should be popular.
