THE VISITORS’ BOOK
Orlando Manners, heir to the beautiful Cotswolds estate of Laybridge in the English countryside, meets Lindy on a Caribbean beach and takes her home to be his bride. Lindy has won her holiday in a competition in a magazine she read at the hairdresser’s. Lindy is a hard-working middle class girl whose career is all important to her. She is not prepared for her life as Orlando’s wife where she is expected to host weekends for his debauched aristocratic circle of friends at The Cottage, his weekend retreat atLaybridge. Then she is presented with The Visitors’ Book by Orlando’s formidable godmotherVictoria Hissey – a journal begun generations earlier and continued by Orlando’s late mother, Daisy, whose entries reveal a cruelly destructive flirt completely unlike the saint Orlando remembers. But it is The Visitors’ Book that holds the key to the estate’s tragic past – and neither a marriage nor a woman’s heart may survive its revelations.
