I tell you your mine will be in ruins and your home destroyed and your children forgotten . . . but this hill will be standing still to confound you.' So curses Morty Donovan when 'Copper John' Brodrick builds his mine at Hungry Hill.

The Donovans, the original owners of Clonmere Castle, resent the Brodricks' success, and consider the great house and its surrounding land theirs by rights. For generations the feud between the families has simmered, always threatening to break into violence . . .

Review:

A storyteller of cunning and genius ( Sally Beauman)

Daphne du Maurier has no rival ( Sunday Telegraph)

du Maurier is a magician, a virtuouso. She can conjure up tragedy, horror, tension, suspense the ridiculous, the vain, the romantic ( Good Housekeeping)

As poignant and powerful as du Maurier's better-known romantic fiction ( DAILY MAIL)
