Limerence is often called love, but it is not; it is a compulsive desire for one person above all others, along with a mind-altering, desperate need to be acknowledged by that person
This is a story of love and limerence, of Alice's struggle to overcome her disappointments and to fulfil her long-held belief in perfect love. It deals with longing, with forgiveness, with promises kept and broken, and the vivid historical strand running through the story so vital to Alice brings to life the ancestors she's proud of and those she would rather forget; the port of Bristol holds them all and the unblemished life of her hero Captain Phillip Rossetti guides her through the fantasies of her youth to the calamity she is helpless to avoid.
