His legacy seemed a godsend: there was enough money for her to give up the none-too-successful stage career that he had encouraged. And now her husband Geoffrey could compose is music without financial pressure. ""Welcomes,"" her uncle's retreat on the seacoast, provided a home away from the distractions of London. But the house came with an assortment of aged and distant relatives-a once-famous stage actress and her devoted nurse, a mid-Victorian comedienne, and a minor poet and former Don Juan. Still, Clare and Geoff settled into a comfortable, if not totally satisfactory, pattern of quiet country life.
