The Cornish coast, a timeless landscape, its beauty an inspiration to young artists for generations. The hauntingly beautiful, enigmatic Florence Carter-Wood flees from London, craving excitement and freedom. She joins her brother in a group of artists whose wild, bohemian world has as its star the charismatic and larger than life AJ Munnings. AJ and his best friend – soldier Gilbert Evans – both fall head over heels in love with Florence, but despite her feelings for Gilbert, Florence is mesmerized by AJ’s talent and magnetism. Too late she realizes her mistake, breaking everyone’s heart, especially her own. It is an unforgettably compelling story, deeply moving – and true.
