Natalia and Gorsky’s passion ignites but Tom’s fierce, anti-semitic outburst casts a shadow over things. Read by Philip Arditti.
Natalia and Tom Summerscale are a golden couple who live an opulent life in Chelsea.
When Nick is called upon to deliver an art book for Natalia to their home, The Laurels, he enters a world where everything appears to be perfect. But he soon discovers that Natalia is the woman for whom Gorsky is building his lavish palace, opposite The Laurels, with every intention that she should leave her husband and renew her ten year old promise to him.
Tom Summerscale is growing increasingly jealous, and Natalia seems to be waiting before she makes her move.
