(From the publisher):
Claude, of peasant origins, is returning to the chateau where he used to work, having discovered he has no religious vocation. Here he encounters Edward, the son of a wealthy landowner, with whom he is alternately fascinated and repelled... and May, Edward's sister, who plunges him headlong into sexual infatuation. But as each of them grows and chooses a different path in life, competing affections bring about an intense drama and tragic climax.
