'One of the last century's greatest woman writers' Guardian When
sixteen-year-old Portia is orphaned she is plunged into the
sophisticated and politely treacherous world of her wealthy
half-brother's home. There she encounters the attractive cad Eddie.
To him, Portia is at once child and woman, and he fears her gushing
love. To her, Eddie is the only reason to be alive. But when Eddie
follows Portia to a sea-side resort, the flash of a cigarette
lighter in a darkened cinema illuminates a stunning romantic
betrayal - and sets in motion one of the most moving and desperate
flights of the heart in modern literature.
