A woman on her deathbed recalls the summer of 1936, when her new friend, Cathryn, transformed the way she thought forever, in an intimate story of friendship, marriage, and relationships.
On her deathbed, Isobel – hat maker, wife, and mother – recalls the haunting and fateful summer of 1936 when her world was transformed. After her husband Victor takes their sons away for the summer to a remote island, Isobel meets Cathryn, a woman who will forever change the way she looks at life. An intimate story of friendship, a portrait of marriage, and a glimpse into the depths of loss, the events of this summer become the prism that refracts the essence of Isobel’s life. This is a gorgeous debut, a true literary page-turner.
