"Some books change lives. This is one of them."
(Val McDermid)
A haunting story of obsessive love which scandalized the world when first published.
 
With a new foreword by Val McDermid.
 
Therese is just an ordinary sales assistant working in a New York department store when a beautiful, alluring woman in her thirties walks up to her counter. Standing there, Therese is wholly unprepared for the first shock of love. Therese is an awkward nineteen-year-old with a job she hates and a boyfriend she doesnít love; Carol is a sophisticated, bored suburban housewife in the throes of a divorce and a custody battle for her only daughter. As Therese becomes irresistibly drawn into Carolís world, she soon realizes how much they both stand to lose...
 
First published pseudonymously in 1952 as The Price of Salt, Carol is a hauntingly atmospheric love story set against the backdrop of fiftiesí New York.
