Mary Sheepshanks returns her readers to provincial England, this time to a boarding school where Flavia Cameron, a brilliant young musician, has retreated after a disastrous affair; still reeling from rejection, she hastily agrees to marry a man she admires but does not love: Gervaise, the mild-mannered school headmaster.Beautiful and talented, Flavia could have stood her ground in the best concert halls in the world; now, in her new role as the headmaster's bride, she swiftly sweeps the entire school off its feet.But when a dashing widower enrolls his only son in the school, Flavia encounters a man who for the first time in her life sees her not as a showpiece or a prodigy, but as herself. It is a discovery that will throw her life, and all of those around her, into turmoil.
