A scarcely believable rumor climbing the literary grapevine hints that Emmanuel Foxx's great modernist novel, Ariadne, whose theme is a woman's emotional life, may actually have been written by his wife, Gabrielle. When a New York publishing house invites Kate Fansler to write a biography of the obscure and enigmatic Gabrielle, she instantly accepts.
Her research quickly zeroes in on three charming older women -- all connected with the Foxx family since childhood -- who know more than they are willing to tell Kate about the true relationship between Emmanuel and Gabrielle Foxx. Much more.
Behind their fierce secrecy, Kate discerns a fantastic pattern of events, a shocking secret that fifty years have done nothing to defuse, and a strange truth that she can never reveal.
