Publisher's Summary

While traveling on a train, Sylvester Wykes sees a woman leap from the carriage to rescue a stranded sheep. He glimpses a face that is white with tragedy; that image lodges in his mind and forms the seed of a splendid drama of love and fate.

Told with a perfect sweetness and cynicism, rich in character and malicious wit, this is one of Wesley's most intelligent and intensely moving novels.

Critic Reviews

With wry humor and intelligent, likable characters, Wesley gracefully steers her fantasy to a happy ending. Warmly recommended." (Library Journal)
