In an elite New England college, Professor Steven Brookman embarks upon a careless affair with a brilliant but reckless student, Maud Stack.
She is a young woman whose passions are not easily contained or curtailed, and is known as something of a firebrand on campus.
As the stakes of their relationship prove higher than either one could have anticipated, their union seems destined to yield tragic and far-reaching consequences.
