Out Of The Blue
A romantic and suspenseful read with a fresh, contemporary setting.
When Amadea Fontaine wakes upon her thirtieth birthday to find a naked man in the spare room of her immaculate flat, she is horrified, not least because -- suffering from her first ever hangover -- she cannot remember who he is, but, it subsequently emerges, nor can he.
Desperate to find out how this extremely handsome and engaging man ended up in her home, Amadea enlists the help of her neighbour, Doctor Rob Greer. At first, following efforts to help Amadea's naked guest, whom she christens "Edward No Name," regain his memory, it is decided that the best thing for him is to be hospitalized. However, when it looks as if Edward is about to become the victim of medical experiments, they are forced to act, and spirit him away from hospital and down to her mother's remote farmhouse in Somerset.
Florence Fontaine lives simply, off the land, without television or radio, and Edward feels as if he has awoken in Paradise. As the summer sun starts to climb into the heavens, and birdsong fills the air, his memory starts to return. But, it is only when the local country estate holds a Fête champêtre, to which everyone is invited to appear in eighteenth-century costume, that Edward's true identity -- and his past -- are revealed.
