About this book:

Poet John Carson lives in a crumbling seaside house with his sister and niece. Winter is upon him, and he writes feverishly to the woman who has abandoned him as a lover yet kept him as a correspondent. Theresa: beautiful, generous . . . and married. 
Will John and Theresa find a way to overcome everything that holds them apart or is a state of permanent longing, in fact,  really what poets need?
