The first three of six psychological romance novels, love stories with a jagged edge, by the Queen of Crime, writing under the pseudonym Mary Westmacott.

This omnibus gathers together the first three Mary Westmacott novels: Giant's Bread: When a gifted composer returns home after being reported killed in the war, he finds his wife has already remarried...Unfinished Portrait: A female novelist attempts suicide after a marriage break up...Absent in the Spring: A middle-aged woman tries to come to terms with her husband's love for another woman...
