A packet of letters, found in an attic, leads a young girl into the world of love. The attic is in Montefort, a corroding country house in County Cork, which harbours a group of people held together by odd ties of kinship or habit, and haunted by the memory of its former owner who was killed in France as a young man. At Montefort, under the domination of the deceased's cousin and heiress, Antonia, and in the midst of an unusually hot and dry summer, young Jane pursues her own imaginings. Not far off an immigrant from another world - a rich promiscuous, parvenue Englishwoman Lady Latterly, who will play a part in Jane's awakening.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"One of her best books. I delighted in its blend of nature and art, in the way that its penetrating insight into character is irradiated and made beautiful by the shimmering rainbow light of her humour" * Sunday Times *
"A major writer: her name should appear on any responsible list of the ten most important fiction writers in English on this side of the Atlantic in this century" -- Victoria Glendinning
"Concise, intense and emotional" * BBC Arts *
