On an expanse of sweet-smelling grass at the edge of the Cornwall cliffs, a family gathers on one of the last halcyon days before World War II. It is a scene of proper English country living. But for five unconventional, adolescent cousins--Polly and Walter who are brother and sister; Oliver, who has fought in the Spanish Civil War; the illegitimate, orphaned Sophie; and the beautiful, self-assured Calypso--the camomile lawn becomes a garden of sexual tension and temptation. They play their childhood chase game, the Terror Run, and talk about losing their innocence. When the war comes, it adds a reckless zest to their lives; their games become realities. With death a constant menace and sexual conventions rejected, they couple with abandon and face their private tragedies with legendary British reserve.
