Waterstones Says

From the author of Graceland comes a poignant and gripping novel set in 1950s Brighton, where individual passions must make way for convention, with tragic consequences.

Discover an exquisitely told, tragic tale of thwarted love.

It is in 1950s' Brighton that Marion first catches sight of Tom. He teaches her to swim in the shadow of the pier and Marion is smitten - determined her love will be enough for them both.

A few years later in Brighton Museum Patrick meets Tom. Patrick is besotted with Tom and opens his eyes to a glamorous, sophisticated new world.

Tom is their policeman, and in this age it is safer for him to marry Marion. The two lovers must share him, until one of them breaks and three lives are destroyed.
