The Blank Wall, by Elisabeth Panxay Holding, Skeffington, 1947.
This book is supposed to be about Lucia Holley, a mother trying to raise her two teenage children while her husband is a captain in the second world war. It is supposed to be, but Lucia is a reactor, and not an actor. All of her reactions are to protect her children and live-in father. Far more interesting is Donnelly. His motives are as murky as his morals.
