But is it enough? Cassandra and her husband Abe are on the deck of their boat on a summer afternoon in the San Francisco Bay.
There is a terrible row. Cassandra has been unfaithful. Again. In a fit of rage, Abe throws himself off the boat. So begins The Violet Hour, an unsettling story of a marriage, of rich lives and the American dream, squandered.
In this mesmerising novel, Katherine Hill reveals our darkest desires and how we can so easily tear the threads of the perfect life.
