Edwardian summer at and English resort, eighteen-year-old Alice encounters a Frenchman, a sea captain apparently, escaping his countrymen. The intriguing foreigner, one day silent, the next vocal with his perplexing views - and is the woman with him really his wife? - brings exotic mystery, but also a startling and quite unexpected skill. The heady summer shapes Alice's future, not least her relationship with the son of the wealthy Bourton family. Not until summer's end does she learn the Frenchman's identity. Even then, she has little idea of the influence he will have on her life.
