Description

An illicit affair, an unsolved murder, an intense summer romance in Cape Cod - introducing Holly LeCraw's explosive and stunningly-written debut.

Seven summers ago, on Cape Cod, Marcella Atkinson - a married woman - fell in love with Cecil McClatchey, married father of two. Fuelled by desire and mutual respect, a secret affair blossomed, but when Cecil's wife was murdered, their romance promptly ended. Cecil died soon after, and while his wife's murder has never been solved, he remains a suspect.

Years later, Marcella returns to her beach house on the Cape, where she encounters Cecil's grown son, Jed, who remembers her quite vividly from his youth. As both of them struggle to cope with the grief and loss of the past, they fall into a torrid and complicated affair. But as their relationship deepens, it leads to emotional crises and revelations about the unsolved murder of Jed's mother. Brilliant and seductive, this is a debut novel about love in all its forms and about the ripple effects of actions both good and evil.
