Summary (From the publisher):

Originally published as The Tenth Moon, Come Back to Sorrento is one of four of Dawn Powell's so-called "Ohio novels" to be re-issued (the others are Dance Night, My Home is Far Away and The Bride's House). Connie Benjamin, the village shoemaker's wife, was raised in a wealthy household and had pretensions toward an operatic career. Blaine Decker, the new high school music teacher, is a homosexual in a closeted era who once spent time abroad studying piano. The two are drawn together into a powerful friendship of dependence, each sustaining the other in a conviction of superiority and translating the surface monotony of their lives into a drama richer than reality.
