Abstract:

Bax's somewhat bizarre heroine Celestine Quareine (or is it Jones?) decides to walk the length of Offa's Dyke in Wales. Each night she has arranged for an ex-lover to sleep with her, including her estranged husband Jonathan. She hopes that these meetings will enable her to gain an understanding of why she has never been able to sustain a lasting relationship. Celestine also carries with her more than the average amount of emotional baggage, not helped by the mysterious murder of her mother in India, when she was a mere six-months old.
