So orphan Struan Robertson, leaves his native town of Cuik, and arrives in London. His job is to care for Phillip, paralysed by a massive stroke. Struan finds himself tangled in a midsummer's dream of mistaken identity and overwhelming passions. For everyone, it is to be a life-changing summer.

"A bright book about dark subjects: a tale about kindness and its limits, told with love, nominated for the Costa First Novel Award
"With wit and zest, Clanchy creates social comedy out of teeth-clenching situations... Clanchy's trenchant, often very funny prose also shimmers with sensual pleasures" (Guardian)
"Meeting the English>feels like an updated Iris Murdoch novel, with sharper haircuts and more Laura Ashley furnishings." (Independent on Sunday)
