Publisher Description

An Englishwoman is taken in by a duplicitous suitor in this “constantly surprising work” from the Whitbread Award–winning author of Love and Summer (John Updike, The New Yorker).

Forty-seven-year-old widow Julia Ferndale can’t believe her good luck—she’s about to remarry. What’s more, her fiancé, Francis Tyte, is a charming actor and magazine model fourteen years her junior. Her daughters are thrilled. Her mother is suspicious. But unfortunately for Julia, she keeps those suspicions to herself.
 
After the wedding, Francis reveals a past that includes an abandoned wife, a mistress and child, and the many others he’s used and left behind to deal with his wreckage. Finding herself suddenly added to their number, Julia is shocked out of her dream and onto a sobering journey that leads into the savage realities of the world.
“Pungent with the sense of evil and corruption.” —John Updike, The New Yorker
