239 pages; Remainder mark on bottom, slightly soiled edge, slightly cocked; price cut dust wrapper chipped at spine tail and lightly rubbed. ; Some consider this Gordon's best book. There is always a spiritual or religous overtone somewhere in Gordon's work, and the counterpoint with the slightly off-balance "au pair" Laura is ominous. Laura's presence in the novel gives it almost a thriller quality Gordon has never attempted. Think Rebecca DeMornay in the film, "Hand that Rocks the Cradle, " but lower key! Think Mother Love, but not Stella Dallas!
