Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mass market paperback edition of this novel set in turn-of-the-century Boston, and concerning the torrid affair between a fifteen year-old girl and a friend of her father's, and its far-reaching consequences. A tender, evocative rites-of-passage tale, shot through with beautifully descriptive passages, which should only serve to help Anita Shreve's burgeoning reputation as a writer of true quality. "Exceptionally fine, amazingly evocative" "The Express".

Synopsis:

In turn-of-the-century New England 14-year-old Olympia Biddeford is spending the summer with her parents at their seasonal house at Fortune's Rocks. She is swiftly despatched to Boston when it's discovered she has embarked on an affair with a friend of her father's, but Olympia is already pregnant.
