When young poet Dora Fielding moves to Helensburgh, she is newly married, pregnant, and excited by her prospects until she comes up against the suffocating realities of small town life. Meanwhile at Larchfield School, Wystan H. Auden, brilliant and awkward at 24, is mocked by his pupils for his Englishness and suspected of homosexuality. Yet in this repressed limbo, the need for human connection compels these two vulnerable outsiders to find each other and make a reality of their own that will save them both.
