Edith likes to think she is a good person. She was a dutiful daughter to her demanding mother, while selfish younger sister Renata got all the attention (and all the husbands). Now their mother has died, and the handsome, widowed family solicitor is on his way with news of the will, perhaps she can be happy at last... But something tells her that Renata - glamorous, impossible, Renata - will always come out on top. Surrounded by their mother's temptingly portable collection of antiques, will Edith find that honesty, like beauty, is only skin deep?
