Yet the path destiny required Bridget to follow was not an easy one. Her feckless cousin Victoria became infatuated with Lionel Filmore, the fortune-hunting elder son of an old but impoverished family living in the decayed grandeur of Grove House. Bridget had no illusions about Lionel, but at the same time Victoria’s happiness was something for which she would give and yield much. So a pattern began to form that would shape the lives of generations to come; a pattern of some good and some great evil, but all of it inexorably linking Bridget ever more closely with the Filmores and their House.
The Black Candle displays all the skills of narrative and the shrewd perception of human strengths and frailties. This is a story spanning nearly half a century, ever engrossing, with a diversity of brilliantly realised characters, particularly Bridget Mordaunt, a strikingly memorable woman who illustrates the truth that while people are changed by events they remain essentially the same inside.
