One Scheme of Happiness

Ali Thurm, MA 1981

It's funny what you remember about childhood games. Helen was always the wallflower at school, while Vicky and Sam were the golden couple. But as time passes, and the teenage sweethearts' relationship begins to falter, Helen faces a choice - will she help her friends rekindle their marriage, or will she help herself to the man she has always loved? A compelling tale of lust and obsession, One Scheme of Happiness tells the story of a love triangle that goes very, very wrong. You know what they say… it's always the quiet ones you have to watch.
