Eddie and Rose have been best friends since they were younger. As they get older, they are both expected to find a husband. While Rose has found one she will marry, Eddie is not at all interested. Instead, she would prefer to write. When she meets Nash, one of her favorite poets, she is mesmerized by him and gladly accepts his invitation to his country estate for the month. However, things are not quite as above board as Eddie thought.
This is a great coming of age story. The two best friends finding a way to keep their friendship as they get older certainly takes the reader through the paces. I love how alluring Nash is at first. As the story progresses, his idiosyncrasies become more alarming. This makes for a great read as you are yelling at Eddie to “wake up girl!”
Many thanks to Net Galley and to St. Martin’s Press for providing me with an ARC of this book.
