Synopsis: Jenny’s marriage is loveless, and she is having an affair. She works at an old people’s home, where she is especially fond of Stella, a gracious, dignified woman dying of cancer – whose own secrets parallel Jenny’s – with the difference that she may have been involved in murdering her lover’s husband . . .
Both a finely crafted mystery and a disturbingly honest depiction of the kinship between love and madness, The Brimstone Wedding tells an unsettling story about the power and the poison of love.
