Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


It is the summer of 1899, and Olympia Biddeford and her parents have retired from the heat of Boston to the coastal resort of Fortune's Rocks. When the celebrated essayist John Haskell is invited to stay, no one forsees the affair that is to follow between a 15-year-old girl and a man three times her age. With no regard for propriety or self-preservation, Olympia plunges forward with catastrophic results into a relationship that is both passionate and destructive, as these six short weeks shape the rest of her life.
