Vain Shadow - Jane Hervey

I have treated myself to another bookish Christmas present, a year-long Persephone book subscription. So for the next twelve months, I´m getting a wonderful Persephone book in the mail every month. 


The first book I received is "Vain Shadow", a book BrokenTune has brought to my attention and which I liked the sound of. And it is off to a good start. Right from the get go (and after the death of the patriarch of the family) tensions are rising between the family members.
