    Summary

    Therese Belivet flees the shadows of her youth, seeking a new life. The shifting America of 1962 is rife with opportunities for such rebirth. She's paid her dues; the hard-won Master's Degree and Teaching Credential top her resume. The twenty-two-year-old needs a chance, a break. Might a high-school English department head be her ray of light? Carol Aird of New York Public School District #3 has a discerning eye for talent and character; she seeks both at the New York State Teachers Employment Fair.

    Can a true, forever love blossom in an ordinary school setting?

    Summary

    I’d like to think of this as a throwback to Patricia Highsmith’s noir genre. What if two ordinary people, Therese Belivet and Carol Aird, found themselves embroiled in events spinning rapidly out of control? Who is to be trusted? What is to be believed? Can one of them actually trust her lover’s memories of the events?

    They've built a silent language of their own in a thousand gestures and subtle glances. Mostly, it works, but even the best systems run afoul sometimes.
