Abstract:

In 1946, artist Rebecca Swift's dreams of love and a life free from convention are crashing like the waves of the Australian coast below her. And it's into those roiling waters that she disappears. Forty-one years later, Tess Miller's dreams are crashing, too. The once-successful New York editor has lost her most prestigious author to the handsome new golden boy of publishing. Meanwhile, she's stuck with Edward Russell, a washed-up Australian poet writing a novel about some obscure artist named Rebecca Swift. But Tess may have underestimated Russell. His book is not only true--it's a searing, tragic romance and a tantalizing mystery set in a circle of postwar modernists. When Tess uncovers a long-hidden secret, she's drawn even deeper into Rebecca's enigmatic life and death. As Rebecca's past intertwines with the present, Tess finds herself falling for the last man she thought she'd ever be drawn to. On the way, she discovers the power of living an authentic life--and that transcendent love never really dies.
