A triple tragedy drives Laura to take refuge in a dream world of long ago at Melloney Park. This gracious Jacobean house and garden once belonged to an Edwardian musician and is now open to the public. As its custodian Laura finds it a haven from the harsh world outside and the spirit of the family who once lived there is a soothing balm which protects her from the necessity of looking forward.
Only Ian Vestry, the young friend of her uncle's who found her the job, is an insisting presence threatening to break through her anaesthetised tranquillity.
So Roger Malmesbury's offer of marriage based on friendship and a common interest in the house seems at first a way to complete her insulation against all intrusive and disturbing emotion. The only trouble is that Laura finds there are two people inside her. One huddled against life, clasping an enchanted dream world, the other uncurling painfully, looking round with frightened eyes, recognising perhaps too late that marriage requires more than mere friendship.
