Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the acclaimed writer of Private Altars, comes a story of driving lyrical force set in Manhattan in the 1950s. When he is expelled from boarding school, Gabriel Gibbs is sent to live with his older brother Spencer in New York. Rather than a punishment, this becomes an exhilarating invitation to a dazzling world, from smoking cigars at the Plaza Hotel to weekend house parties filled with tennis and cocktails. It is in this heady atmosphere — from white-gloved Park Avenue to literary Greenwich Village — that Gabriel first glimpses the elusive Lillian Dawes. Free-spirited and mysterious, Lillian captures the imaginations of those in "all the best circles," including both brothers. As their lives entwine, so begins the powerful and poignant unraveling of innocence.

Synopsis:

When the beautiful, mysterious Lillian Dawes shows up in New York, she seems to be everywhere at once, radiating charm and instantly captivating two orphaned brothers, Gabriel and Spencer. Their infatuation takes them down the dark roads of Lillian's past and changes their lives irrevocably.
