'if my pen has ever done anything for Wales it is honoured.'
-Margiad Evans


First published in 1933, this is the story of Arabella, an adolescent girl obsessed with her doctor. From a childhood blighted by a violent, alcoholic father, Arabella grows into a passionate young woman, impatient of any restraints. Misunderstood by all around her, she craves the security and peace she associates with the Irish doctor, and develops a strange illness, like a fox inside her - biting and tearing her flesh. Her condition, it seems, is incurable.

'..a gripping, tempestuous novel, intense, beautifully written with an emotional range that sweeps from passion to tenderness.'
Dr. Jeni Williams, Trinity College, University of Wales
