Martin Seward's soujourn in the country is about to take an unexpected turn for the better, it least for those last golden, sunlit days of summer. However, the fateful intersection of his cousin Alicia and his neighbor Dacron Redstone will eventually lead to consequences that can only be described as disastrous. At least if you have no sense of humor. Bartelme's comical account of life with the summer people will make you wonder if that country house is really worth it.
