FORMAT: Paperback
PAGES: 500

Sara Gomez watches from behind clattering shutters as her new neighbours arrive. Here is a tall dark man; with him a little girl, long-legged and coltish. And a bald man who walks like a clumsy puppet, tilting his open-mouthed face to look at the sky. Do they seem strange, these newcomers? Sara suspects that on a still day, a sunny day good for the beach, they would not. But Juan Olmedo has his reasons for fleeing the city to re-establish himself in this mundane seaside suburb. A tragedy in his family's past. A secret sexual obsession that threatens the fragile equilibrium he cherishes. And Sara too is an exile. Given up as a baby to her mother's childless employer, she has found herself caught between pleasure and duty-shamed before her true family; repelled by their poverty. Sara has more money than she ever dreamed of, but her freedom has come at a price. And now the lives of these two people will intersect. Blown together as if by the capricious winds that scour the coast, they will be tumbled between fortune and adversity.
