Summary (From the publisher):

A chameleon, an enigma, all things to all women, a lifeline to which powerful needs and nameless longings may be attached, Ken Kimble is revealed through the eyes of the women he seduces: Birdie, his first wife, struggling to hold herself together after his desertion; second wife, Joan, a lonely, tragic heiress who sees her unknowable husband as her last chance for happiness; and Dinah, a beautiful but damaged woman half his age.

Blurbs:
  • "A luminous debut...The women are both weak and strong in their own ways, and the ending proves that Kimble may have done some good in spite of himself. A beautiful novel with memorable, vibrant characters that will have wide appeal." Booklist
  • "Haigh is spare and low-key, masterful at delineating the quiet but revealing moment." The Boston Globe
  • "This gripping debut novel examines how easily shrewd lies can be mistaken for acts of love." Book Magazine
