Montauk, Long Island, 1938. Beatrice Bordeaux was looking forward to a summer of reigniting the passion between her and her husband, Harry. Instead, she learns she'll be spending twelve weeks with the high society wives at The Montauk Manor while Harry pursues other interests in the city. Bea has never felt fully comfortable among these privileged women, and as she drifts closer toward Montauk's natural beauty, she finds herself drawn to a man nothing like her husband - stoic, plain spoken and enigmatic. Desperate to embrace moments of happiness, no matter how fleeting, she soon discovers that such moments may be all she has, when fates conspire to tear her world apart.
