The Rose and the Yew Tree

written under the pseudonym Mary Westmacott
William Heinemann, London, Nov. 1948
Farrar & Rinehart, New York, 1948


Everyone expected Isabella Charteris, beautiful, sheltered and aristocratic, to marry her cousin Rupert when he came back from the War. It would have been such a suitable marriage. How strange then that John Gabriel, an ambitious and ruthless war hero, should appear in her life. For Isabella, the price of love would mean abandoning her dreams of home and happiness forever. For Gabriel, it would destroy his chance of a career and all his ambitions.
