The title of this book refers to the river Lethe in Greek mythology--those who drink of it experience forgetfulness of all memories. But for the heroine, oblivion seems unattainable beyond the rocks...

This novel is about a young girl who is sold into a high society marriage and knows nothing of love until she meets a dashing philanderer. The ensuing story focuses on their romance and struggle to take the moral high ground.

While this book does not reach the emotional or intellectual depths of novels such as Wharton's "Age of Innocence," and is slighty predictable at times, nevertheless it is an enjoyable read.
