"Love, passion, and obsession are at the heart of [this novel], about a man's all-consuming desire for a bewitching and beguiling woman"-- Provided by publisher
Since childhood, Wylie Rose has been drawn to the charming, close-knit Bonet siblings, especially Cesca, a girl blessed with incandescent beauty and a wild, irrepressible spirit. His friendship with her brother, Aurelio, a budding painter of singular talent, brings him near Cesca's circle. Amused by Wylie's youthful sensuality and trusting innocence, Cesca toys with his devotion, drawing him closer to her fire, ultimately ruining him for any other woman. As we follow their tempestuous, heart-wrenching affair, we discover the devastating depths of human passion and the nature of true love

Good book. Very easy read.

This is a perfect book to read in the summer. The privileged families in this book travel between Europe and the affluent East coast with frequency and ease. It's a sumptuous and sensuous book of art, beaches, food, wine, parties, and travel. The main character "falls in love" with a free spirited girl when he was a young boy. The obsessive and unhealthy love affair continues on and off through much of his early adulthood, affecting his life in many ways. Lovely writing and scenic interludes in this book will take you away. Recommended by N.S., Brunswick Library, MCDL
