Bargain Book Copy
On their first meeting, Emrys and Sebastian fall powerfully, fatally in love. Up until the moment they meet, they have found passion only in obsessions with ancient civilizations - Sebastian, an archaeologist, in the tombs of Orkney, and Emrys, an American academic, in the study of cuneiform and the civilization that produced the epic of Gilgamesh. But three weeks after their meeting, Emrys leaves her long-time lover and her job in America to be with Sebastian, a man she has met only once. Their affair is intense and deeply sexual, but darkened by the secrets they keep from one another. With the fog-shrouded megaliths and the wind-blown islands of Orkney as a backdrop, the affair of kindred souls plays out to its tragic conclusion.
