One yellow April morning, a 17 year old girl asks herself, Do I dare to eat a peach?" Three different answers will send her down three very different paths. That morning is long past. Now she is 41. Kitty Trevelyan has been happily married 23 years. Happily enough. Until her professor asks her for coffee and kisses her. Dr. Katherine North's memory of two lovers chafes her like a hair shirt. After reading one has died, she contacts the otheronly to discover that she has been renounced for God. Ántonia searches the sea-horizon every evening. In the last light, she can glimpse it: a feminist Utopia built on an abandoned oil rig, led by her charismatic and bipolar lover. Her lost Eden made by Eves. Who are we? Who haven't we been? Have we dared? Three of one woman's possible lives are about to collide.
