Publisher's Summary

The collapse of her brief marriage has stalled Bea Nightingale's life, leaving her middle-aged, alone, and teaching in an impoverished borough of 1950s New York. A plea from her estranged brother gives Bea the excuse to escape lassitude by leaving for Paris to retrieve a nephew she barely knows, but the siren call of Europe threatens to deafen Bea to the dangers of entangling herself in the lives of her brother's family.
The story of Bea's travails on the continent is a fierce and heart-breaking insight into the curious nature of love: how it can be commanded and abused; earned and cherished; or even lost altogether.
