But it is not easy to escape the world and its troubles. Crispin's arrival is delayed, and Rose, on her own in the lonely cottage, has to cope with two very different men who come in from the sea on a night of summer storm.Hide synopsis

Mary Stewart is such a good novelist, and I had great hopes for this book. However, in my opinion it fell flat, lacking depth. The loose ends were too tidily tied up; the resolution too convenient.
It did contain her usual lush descriptions of setting. It reminded me so much of the peace I feel at the shore.
I did give it 2 stars; it is Mary Stewart after all, and the premise had promise.
