Frederic Baras is a pianist, composer, and academic. The Orphic spirit of the novella emerges from the entanglement of his life with the lives of two women: Dree Vreeland, a naturalist searching for the Midnight Swan of legend and conservationist seeking to save Oak Knoll from commercial development; and Louise Loeffler, a pianist who shares Baras's passion for music. The time is now, and the place is Lost Isle University adjacent to the city of Fort Clark in the northern steppe of the United States.
