A rich, passionate account of lost love and the return to loving, where currents of regret and loneliness clash with a fiery instinct for survival. A Spanish seaside enclave finds many women trying to pacify their memories. The imperious Iris, no longer young; Charlotte, the glittering debutante whose thirst for life has driven her to bitter withdrawal; and Anna, the wounded narrator, who senses in the young Spanish girl Catalina a rare chance to defy the ravages of time and find a renewal of hope. But the landscape of the heart is laid with mines, and new dangers attend on new loves.
