Adapted for television by Ed Whitmore (Identity, Waking The Dead). BAFTA winning actress Francesca Annis (Cranford) stars alongside renowned film, stage and television actors Tim Pigott-Smith (Foyle's War) and Rupert Evans (Emma) and rising star Lucy Griffiths (Collision). Ruth (Griffiths), is married to career minded Patrick (Evans) as she is pushed towards the limits of her own sanity when she becomes entangled in the lives of her wealthy but interfering in-laws Elizabeth (Annis) and Frederick (Pigott-Smith). After falling unexpectedly pregnant, Ruth finds herself swept along on a tide of apparently well-intentioned family gestures which leave the previously independent teacher detached from her former city life and living in 'the littlehouse' at the end of her in-laws' driveway. Elizabeth's complex relationship with Ruth is subtly developed as they both try and take control of their connected lives until, inevitably, and very dramatically, they reach a point of no return. Is Elizabeth playing mind games with Ruth? Could she really be manipulating events against her daughter in-law? Or is Ruth hysterically distorting things in her own mind? ...The LittleHouse

A contemporary psychological thriller in the style of Ruth Rendell, from one of today's most versatile and compelling storytellers. It was easy for Elizabeth. She married the man she loved, bore him two children and made a home for him which was the envy of their friends. It was harder for Ruth. She married Elizabeth's son and then found that, somehow, she could never quite measure up! Isolation, deceit and betrayal fill the gaps between the two individual women and between their different worlds. In this complex thriller, Philippa Gregory deploys all her insight into what women want and what women fear, as Ruth confronts the shifting borders of her own sanity. Laying bare the comfortable conventions of rural England, this spine-tingling novel pulses with suspense until the whiplash double-twist of the denouement.
