A strange Englishman journeys down through France to an old chateau, determined to find out why the girl who loved him sent the letter that drove him into a mental institution. Still haunted by... More > flashbacks of their Paris affair and walking the uncertain edge of sanity, he talks far into the night with the evanescent figure of Cyrano de Bergerac about why he is being followed and threatened … and hoping for a small miracle.
From the independent judge’s medal award:
“From the outset the reader is made to care, desperate to know what brought him to this state. And, as with all the best stories, one cannot guess the final denouement. This is a finely crafted story of an enduring love that becomes an obsession. This writer knows how to build tension, create three dimensional characters and write realistic dialogue.”< Less
