As a reluctant student at Harrington High's summer school, Chris meets a fun-loving senior girl who offers a welcome diversion from Chris's past. Soon Chris no longer searches for the truth about the town of Solitary. He no longer tries to pierce its shadows. He no longer questions his role in its mysteries. He makes a new choice: he runs.

A bitter-sweet memoir and companion to it was The Solitary Summer (). Other works, such as the The Benefactress (), Vera (), and Love (), were also semi-autobiographical. Other titles dealing with feminist protest and witty observations of life in provincial Germany were to follow, including The Princess Priscilla's Fortnight.   The Solitary Summer is a kind, gentle, funny, occasionally sarcastic and absolutely delightful book. It made me crave a garden of my own – and while I’m at it, a summer away from everything and everyone I know might not be such a bad idea either.
