Description
"En un pueblo costero de la Inglaterra de 1950, de esos en los que todo el mundo se conoce y donde el chismorreo es el deporte local, vive Lottie, una joven cariñosa, dispuesta y muy conformista. Su mejor amiga es Celia Holden, con cuya familia vive: ayuda en la casa, hace recados, cuida de los niños. Pero un buen día el pequeño mundo de Lottie se resquebraja: en una casa de la playa se instala un grupo de artistas bohemios; sus costumbres, que para ella son muy exóticas, le descubren una nueva manera de vivir, más libre, rica y estimulante. Y justo por entonces, Celia le presenta a su novio, un chico que ha conocido en Londres..."--Publisher's description.
Description
Merham is a well-ordered 1950's seaside town: the kind of town in which everyone knows their place (and those who don't are promptly put in it). Lottie Swift, an evacuee who has grown up with the respectable Holden family, loves Merham, while the Holden's daughter Celia chafes against the constraints of the town. When a group of Bohemians takes over Arcadia, a stark Art Deco house on the seafront, the girls are as drawn to its temptations as Merham's citizens are appalled by them. They set in place a chain of events both within the Holden family and Merham itself which will have longstanding and tragic consequences for all concerned.
