He had just come out to her as gay, which was so in conflict with her strong religious beliefs, that she disowned him – something she comes to regret when Luke’s father dies and she has no way of letting their son know.So she sets off on a quest which takes her all over Europe – via a commune in France, Barcelona, Berline, the gay bars of Florence, and ending up on a Greek island. On the way, her attitudes are constantly challenged and she has to search her soul to reconcile with her principles the things she discovers en route.In the commune, she picks up a novel to read, and is drawn into a story about a priest in pre-revolutionary Spain, trying to come to terms with his homosexuality. This story becomes the “book within the book” as it mirrors Eleanor’s own misgivings and incipient tolerance. Her quest ends in the Greek island of Symi, but the shock that awaits her is the final catalyst for her new beginning.
