“Beautiful Maddy and her successful author husband Harry have an idyllic marriage. Living in the Hamptons, perfectly suited to one another, and always surrounded by a close circle of friends, they draw admirers like moths to a flame. Enter Claire, a young New Yorker, who quickly becomes enamored of the couple and inserts herself within their circle. While young and innocent, Claire's presence will ultimately destroy everything Maddy and Harry hold dear. Narrated by Maddy's childhood best friend, Walter, who is also secretly in love with her, this tale is mesmerizing in its telling.”
