Chance brings a circle of women to a Spanish enclave, a small town overrun with flowers and perched above a sea "of such blueness that it seemed not to be water but a potion of magical properties.' They are here to settle their accounts with the past: the imperious Iris, no longer young; Charlotte, the once glittering debutante who has chosen a life of withdrawal; and Anna, the yearning narrator, who senses in the young Spanish girl Catalina a rare chance to defy the ravages of time and to grasp at a renewal of hope. [This novel] is a richly passionate account of lost love and regained love in which currents of regret and loneliness clash with a fierce instinct for survival. --Provided by publisher
