An immaculate portrait of adolescent love from one of our most
beloved novelists. '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.
