Louisa comes to this beautiful Greek island to visit the grave of her son. On the summer of her seventeenth year, she'd been there as a tourist, where she fell in love with rich and powerful noble Andreas, conceived his child and then married him. But their marriage ended abruptly after only two years with the death of their son. Now, Louisa shakes off the bad memories and steps off the ferry onto the island, only to be shocked: Why is Andreas here, when she was told he would be away? She hasn't spoken to her husband even once in five years, and she finds a maddening mixture of hatred and love for him stirring in her heart.
