A question of trust: a novel
The Overlook Press,
Overlook Press edition.
Penny Vincenzi, internationally bestselling author of No Angel, has dazzled readers with her intricately crafted novels for nearly twenty years. She unleashes her signature narrative prowess once more in her latest novel, A Question of Trust.In 1950s London, Tom Knelston is charismatic, charming, with a passion for politics and reform. He is a man with ambition--and someone to watch. His wife Alice, a former nurse, shares his ideals. It seems they are the perfect match.Then, out of the blue, Tom meets an old childhood acquaintance, the beautiful and unhappily married Diana Southcott, a fashion model. In many ways, she is everything Tom fights against, but she is also irresistible and so, flirting with danger, they embark on an affair that is potentially damaging to both. And when his child becomes ill, Tom is forced to make decisions about his principles, his career, his marriage, and, most of all, his love for his child.A Question of Trust is a vintage Penny Vincenzi novel: rich in characterization, life-changing decisions, love, desire, and conflict. "Seductively readable" (The Times), it is a luscious, page-turning read about a precarious situation--both utterly compelling and hugely rewarding.
