When Lydia Eadon invites Dorian Grant to join their college friends at her family’s cottage, she has no idea how her life – and his – will be irrevocably changed. Dorian arrives at the isolated lakeside retreat with a dangerously handsome hitchhiker who proves provocateur to their conventional assumptions. After an explosion of violence, the guests decamp, leaving Lydia and Dorian to grapple with an aftermath so horrific it forever after haunts their lives. Shadowed by obsession, deceit and guilt, Lydia – a book editor in San Francisco – and Dorian – a vagabond actor – hoard their terrible secret until one day, four decades later, circumstances return them to the scene of their youthful revels and they are plunged into a grim reckoning with the past.
