    Augusta Price is a washed-up TV star who starts the novel kicked out of rehab- yet again- for sneaking pills and booze. She doesn't even know the name of the nurse who has been tending her for the week. Augusta is enjoying a minor return to the headlines because of her recently released memoir, and she hopes to capitalise on its success to re-launch her career. However, the memoir is a sham. Her memories, unreliable due to countless blackouts and benders, are edited and embellished past any resemblance of what she thinks might be the truth. Augusta has no guilt over this, asserting that a story is only important for its entertainment value, and Augusta is nothing if not entertaining.

    She has a chance encounter with the other main character, a young writer named Frances. Frances has fled her parents’ affluent lifestyle in California to strike out on her own in London and writes for a magazine. Right after Frances interviews Augusta, the magazine is bought out. Frances loses her job and her fledging hopes of something more with her boss, an unlikely object of anyone’s affections but for some reason, the focus of Frances’s romantic aspirations.

    This book opens in italics with a man taking a walk through Central Park in the winter, stripping off all of his clothes until he’s naked in the snow taking his walk. Then, still in italics, he is taken to a police station and interviewed. It is during this interview he begins to tell his tale; the font goes into regular and the story begins.

Bit by bit Morgan's previous life disintegrates keeping pace with the events developing overseas. Abandoned by her husband Cat, Morgan is left alone in London with her two children. After the children are evacuated into the country the only place Morgan can seek shelter is her childhood home The Villa Rouge, with her father, overly affectionate, war obsessed younger brother and their disagreeable housekeeper. Morgan developed a bit of a reputation for herself when she was a young girl, her marriage and move to London provided an escape from that and she worries that it will return to haunt her when the only distraction from the pain of being separated from her husband and children and the drudgery of running a household is the newly arrived RAF squadron.
