Silas Grange is a handsome young doctor who prides himself on keeping his appetites under perfect control. But when Grange is summoned by a mysterious, voluptuous widow named Celia Quill, he submits readily to the power of her sensuality. Calmly, expertly, and with studied poise, Mrs Quill initiates Grange into pleasures beyond his imagination - and then proceeds to betray him with deceit beyond his darkest fears. Set in an 18th-century English world of polished surfaces and secret desires, The Rationalist weaves a story of reason overthrown by passion, and intellect subverted by sexual obsession.
