Within weeks letters would be burned, pages torn. Promises would be broken and hearts betrayed. But for now the countryside languished, golden and fading

Cecily Chadwick is idling away the long, hot summer of 1911 when a mysterious countess moves into the large, deserted country house on the edge of her sleepy English village. Rumors abound about the countesss many husbands and lovers, her opulent wealth, and the tragedies that have marked her life. As Cecily gets to know her, she becomes fascinated by the remarkable womanriveted by her tales of life on the Continent, and of the famous people she once knew. But the countess is clearly troubled by her memories, and by ruinous secrets that haunt her

Staying with the countess is a successful novelist and dear friend who has been summoned to write the countesss memoirs. For aspiring writer Cecily, the novelists presence only adds to the intrigue of the house. But it is the countesss grandson, Jack, who draws Cecily further into the tangled web of the countess's past, and sweeps her into an uncertain future
