Demure Maud Gonthier from Dijon expects the usual uneventful summer vacation at her aunt's country home, but when the charming, sensuous, rich David Tyler arrives, Maud falls madly in love. Crafted with Brookner's unmistakable and elegant prose, this superb novel explores responsibility and the results of sexual passion and betrayal.

Anita Brookner was born in London and, apart from several years in Paris, has lived there ever since. She trained as an art historian and taught at the Courtauld Institute of Art until 1988.From AudioFile:
A restrained reading best presents Brookner's subtle, but most elegant, prose. Narrator Lindsay Sandison, who's lived in Europe and has a diverse theater background, is the perfect narrator. This introspective novel could easily lose its audience in the hands of a less able narrator. Sandison is so convincing with the many characters and cultures that the listener quite forgets that this is a story, not a biography. S.G.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
