In a story set in the social turmoil of the Vietnam war years, Justin Blake and Emily Bennet find their love mirrored in Renoir’s Dance at Bougival, only to have the young academic forced aside for a family favorite by Emily’s ambitious mother. Shattered, Justin joins his faculty colleague, Lindsay Daley, on a London sabbatical, where Emily soon arrives to inform him she is pregnant and get his agreement for an adoption. They go separate ways in life and marriage, holding in their hearts the moment in time Renoir inspired, until years later an unforeseen encounter provides long-sought closure to their memory.
