Something is wrong at the heart of the tiny fishing village of Naviras, a place where Ellie often sought refuge as the rest of her life was collapsing; during the silent and invisible end of her marriage as her husband’s political power grew.
Ellie fell in love with the village and the people who lived in it. Now she’s back to remember and relive her time there, recalling the secrets which sprang up within its narrow streets and at Casa Amanha, the home of a weather forecaster where her love for two men begins and ends.
Ellie has returned to Naviras just as a conspiracy to destabilise the Middle East is erupting. The village is the first and last place she ought to be, but Naviras has saved its biggest and deadliest secret for last.
