9780001050136: The Tree of Hands

Once when Benet was about fourteen they had been in a train together, alone in the carriage, and Mopsa had tried to stab her with a carving knife. It was some time now since Benet had seen her mad mother, and when Mopsa arrived at Heathrow, looking drab and colorless in a dowdy grey suit, Benet tried not to hate her.

A death in the family precipitates a series of intertwined events—kidnap, murder, deception, and an overwhelming sense of guilt and yearning. A sense that is strongly identified with a bizarre collage in a hospital ward...The Tree of Hands.

From the Inside Flap:

Mopsa, driven by a past scarred by madness and violence. Benet, stricken by the most grievous loss any woman can bear. Carol, trapped in a life of crushing drabness no lover can change. Three mothers joined by a single thread of terror, whirled into a spiral of kidnapping, murder, and a final, reckless affirmation of love.
