“The people who knew Ada McGrath told the story about her and her grand piano time and again. It was not only women who told it – the story was discussed by men at the pub and at the manor as well, some telling it with a shiver, others wondering how far you can go in the name of love or passion. There was something irresistible in the story that offered excitement for all.”
