This work tells the story of a Belfast spinster, her hopes of love and her crisis of faith. The author also wrote "The Doctor's Wife", "The Colour of Blood", and "Lies of Silence".

Every book by Brian Moore is a treat. This is one of his earlier ones and still as fresh as a breeze. It shows his understanding and ability to write women perfectly. Judith Hearne is a lonely woman of a certain age (in 1955 when the book was written, this is considerably younger than nowadays), who thinks she has found love in the attentions of one of her co-lodgers. Her fantasies grow as does her secret passion, which is her undoing, the aspect of her life (which she cannot control) which ultimately ruins her. It is a sad, amusing, poignant novel, sometimes almost unbearable to read, and what The Sunday Times reviewer called, 'an almost classic example of the power given by unity of theme - the range narrow, the craft immense'. And, like all of Brian Moore's books, a page turner. Review by Mavis Cheek (Kirkus UK)
