‘I never fully understood where I fitted in or what to do with what I had.’
What alignment of planets brought about the meeting of two souls - Mothy Chambers, a 16-year-old struggling with adolescent uncertainties and Bette, a mesmeric young woman, settled in the unique southern French town of Collioure? He, sent direct from English boarding school to France by an indifferent family; she, the recently arrived, new wife of his host.
In the warmth, colour and incredible skies of this small town, extraordinary lives are being embraced.
Mothy returns to England and he and Bette maintain a long and mutually confiding correspondence as he struggles to give meaning to his life. Gradually as his memories unfold, he starts to understand the relevance of his earlier times in France; he remembers how important and special this town was to so many people before him and its indisputable effect and transformation on those who came calling.
Mothy reflects on the enchantment of Bette and wonders if the sudden disappearance of his oldest friend is the key to the purpose of his own ordinary life.
