Description

Rose, young, widowed and lonely, yearns for love after a marriage that gave her none. Ellis is the answer to her dreams and desires - a wonderfully sensitive man, a fiercely passionate lover. He is also a priest. This is the story of their intense affair - an affair that is far more than one of the flesh. In Ellis, Rose finds a man unlike any she has ever known or thought a man could be - tender, caring, open to emotion, and able to lead her to a fulfillment that she had abandoned all hope of experiencing. In Rose, with her love of nature, of the land, of all things that grow, Ellis finds a vital link to a world in which he has always felt alien and alone. The flowering of their love affair creates a sensual and a spiritual garden of Eden for them both - before the shattering act that sends them into exile from that blessed patch of happiness - and each other. Counterposed against this classic theme of paradise found and lost is a tragic event years later that casts Rose adrift again, making her resolve to find Ellis. She begins at the monastery he entered at the end of their affair and follows his mysterious path.show more
