The chief claim to importance of the town of Marsden is the presence in it of Marsden College, which has been educating the sons and daughters of solid, conservative citizens for almost a hundred years. As head of Marsden’s Department of English, Gavin MaAllister leads a busy and constructive life. Twenty years earlier he made the choice between romance and ambition and has never regretted his decision. Even the coveted Ph.D. seemed to be within reach. With all well at home, he has been able to save almost enough to enable him to take a year off from teaching and work on his dessertation. Suddenly, this quiet idyll is shattered by two strokes-independent of each other, yet remotely connected.
