let a woman die. And now she's taken her lover.
Tessa Craig is an ambitious psychiatrist who makes a deadly
error of judgment, wrecking the lives of others and leaving
her own life irrevocably changed. Recklessly, in a last
attempt to restore the balance of her life, she sets out
to meet Ben Connelly, the man she has so terribly wronged.
"A terrifically readable novel. What a storyteller
Leroy is, and what an eye she has for contemporary life,
not just the horror of it, but the beauty as well."
The idea for the story came to me as a picture - a very
clear image in my mind of a woman: all I knew about her
to start with was that she was a doctor and that she had
long black hair. She led me into a story about a love
affair that I discovered to be altogether darker and more
morally ambiguous than I had at first supposed.
