The Hollow is the home of Sir Henry and Lady Angkatell. Here, for a weekend, come a Harley Street doctor, his devoted wife, a disgruntles undergraduate, and the dilettante Edward Angkatell, owner of Ainswick, the lovely country house which secretly means so much to most of these people. For one of these guests there is no return journey.
