Don Nigro

Published by Samuel French Inc

4 Male 5 Female

In 1920 the Pendragons gather for the first time in years at the crumbling family mansion in Ohio where Matt Armitage lies dying

As his daughter Dorothy, who can neither hear nor speak, provides a running commentary which is heard only by the audience, her wild sister Jessie chases their half brother John Rose from room to room and tries to fathom what betrayal is behind her father's refusal to speak to her mother

Uncle David, an eccentric poet, is back from scouring Europe for a lost girl

John Rhys Pendragon, the journalist, broods over his wife's death and the loss of his beloved daughter. Sister Lizzy bustles around trying to feed everybody while enduring her own grief as Sarah, the housekeeper, is being driven mad by the confusion

Trapped in the labyrinth of a darkly cruel history, these people nevertheless love each other and make each other laugh

Richly textured and intricately woven through time and space, this funny and moving addition to the author's Pendragon series features characters familiar to fans of Tristan, Pendragon, Anima Mundi, Laestrygonians, The Circus Animals' Desertion, Dramatis Personae and November
