About the Book

Attempting to flee his declining literary career and failing relationship, Cristobal Porter travels to an island in the tropics to research his latest novel. There he meets Ana Kaplan, the wife of an American diplomat and is immediately drawn to her by what he perceives as the shared depth of their loneliness. When Porter’s young mistress arrives on the island and enters into an affair with Ana’s husband, it is the catalyst that draws Ana and Porter closer together.

Porter’s relationship with Ana evolves tentatively, amidst turmoil and resistance, sparking in him a creative revolution – even as the island around them threatens revolt. Exploring the connections between life, death, art and love, Porter discovers a faith that can offer redemption, even as he is forced to come to grips with the unforgiving terrain between ideology and reality, and the insurmountable distances which between bodies lie.
