(From the publisher):
Elsie Lindtner is a woman at the "dangerous age" of forty-two in a society that values women only as marriageable items. After twenty-two years of comfortable but loveless marriage, Elsie divorces her husband and goes off to live alone on an island. But little by little her longing for solitude is tempered by the realities of loneliness and sexual deprivation.
