When coming to terms with the future means letting go of the past...For Victoria, orphaned at six, her grandmother Evanthi's beautiful home in Corfu - Vrahos, known locally as The Venetian House - has always meant safety, freedom and a near-magical kind of contentment. Brought up by her cousin Guy's parents in England, she - together with Guy and his childhood friend, Richard Cunningham - spent all year waiting for the idyllic summer holidays in Corfu where the three children forged a friendship that would last a lifetime. Victoria was mesmerized by brilliant, selfish, enigmatic Guy, but it was safe, affectionate, reliable Richard whom she married. Now, twenty years later, Richard is dead. Victoria discovers her marriage was a sham. And she is left alone with their only child, Jake. Desperate to get away from the home she shared with Richard, and to escape his ultra conventional family, she takes Jake out to The Venetian House, feeling that only these beloved surroundings can she face her demons. And then photographer, Patrick Hammond arrives. He brings with him his own troubles - his marriage to elegant, self-centred, neurotic Rachel is in crisis - yet a friendship, and possibly something more, starts to develop between Patrick and Victoria. But for Evanthi, there is something strangely familiar about Patrick and soon she is forced to face her own troubled past. Against the backdrop of a beautiful old house and its surroundings, all must come to terms with their past before they can contemplate their future.
