Storyline

Her romantic world in tatters Mary turns for help to lonely,well-meaning Catholic priest Father Ferguson.She is not to know that Ruth,having given Vista Rose over to Nurse Hopkins,has installed herself as the priest's atheist house-keeper Molly who also introduces him to sex,convincing him that love does not exist so that the only comfort he gives Mary is cynical and carnal. One night a mysterious wind blows through the light-house.whirling Mary to her death. At her funeral her exact double turns up and later buys the light-house, for Ruth has spent thousands of pounds on turning herself into a carbon copy of the woman she despised.
