Eileen Hughes is young, hauntingly beautiful and very naïve. Befriended by her wealthy employers, Bernard and Mona McAuley, she leaves Ulster for the first time in her life to spend a holiday with them in London. But all is not well with the McAuleys, and, in her bewildering innocence, Eileen fails to see the perilous vulnerability of her position until it is almost too late…
A psychological masterpiece filled with passion and suspense, 'The Temptation of Eileen Hughes' is a stunning exploration of obsession and morality.
