Yet although the attraction is mutual, its development is slow. For there are other tensions not only in the household but also in the community.

Eppie, now almost a member of the family, feels partly responsible for the rift between father and son. She feels even more responsible when Duncan returns home with a stranger who has a mysterious past ...
