A young woman walks out on her life, taking only her young daughter.
They stop at a small French town where they make contacts, with the owner of a flat, with a swimming instructor who is teaching the child, and with a strangely hesitant private investigator, hired by the woman's deserted husband.

Review by RobinDawson
A strange book - all atmosphere and very little plot. The prose is certainly striking - very poetic and elusive. The perspective kept shifting from one character to another but it was quite hard to know who was actually 'speaking' . All very vague and elusive - unlike anything else I've read but nevertheless not a book I enjoyed or would recommend.
