"The event literally leaves Imogen speechless, for how could this happen? Johnny, encouraged, pushed even, from a child by his father, could have made the Olympic team, couldn't he? In the company of his friend Bruno, the handsome young German tutor, Imogen has seen him slicing through the water, staying out for hours before racing back gleaming. She has sailed with the two young men out across the bay that lies beneath the old stone house Great Grandfather bought at the beginning of the century."--BOOK JACKET
