In the rich traditions of Janes and Trollope, this novel follows the escapades of young Timothy Whittaker, who is haunted by the brutal Christmas Eve murder/suicide that left him orphaned and his proud, status-conscious family struggling for their identity. With rich prose and delectable, often eccentric characters, society in the years following WWII. Tim Whittaker matures past his privileged youth and his awkward first loves and ventures into the international world of fine art filled with unscrupulous dealers. As he ages, he cannot forget the terrible legacy of Quaker's Pride, the family's estate.
