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.Read Less

Rose Fenemore hopes that two weeks away from her teaching post at Cambridge might awaken her dormant muse. Her brother Crispin, a doctor in need of a holiday, plans to join her. Then one night before Crispin arrives, Rose is shocked to find a stranger in her kitchen-and a very attrative one. Ewen Mackay claims he grew up in her cottage-he has a key to prove it-and she is just at the point of believing him when another man seeks shelter from the storm. John Parsons also rouses Rose's skepticism...and more tender feelings as well. And as the truth about the two men unfolds, the stormy petrels, fragile, elusive birds who fly close to the waves, come to symbolize Rose's confusion and the mystery of her future.
