This compelling drama centers on Juliana Smithton, a successful neurologist whose life seems to be coming unhinged. Her husband has filed for divorce and her daughter has eloped with a much older man. And just as her research leads to a potential breakthrough, events take a disorienting turn. During a lecture to colleagues at an exclusive beach resort, she glimpses an enigmatic young woman in a yellow bikini amidst the crowd of business suits. But in this brilliantly crafted work, nothing is as it seems. One step at a time, a mystery unravels as contradictory evidence, blurred truth and fragmented memories collide in a cottage on the windswept shores of Cape Cod.
