Why does Elisabeth Danziger make her lonely pilgrimage to the Tamarisks, a resort hotel on the Danish island of Mon? It is 1960, and she has come each August for the past fifteen years. The opening pages...consist of a correspondence about Miss Danziger's death while staying at the Tamarisks. The mysterious end of this doomed character will gradually be explained as the next seven chapters, one for every day of her last week, reveal who she is and why she has returned to Mon every summer since the end of the war...Taylor has a graceful command of language."" - NY Times. ""Terse, clear prose."" - Publishers Weekly.
