The Education of Sebastian

The Education of SebastianA friendship between the lost and lonely Caroline, and the unhappy Sebastian, leads to an illicit love that threatens them both.

Married at 19, Caroline Wilson is trapped in a cold and loveless marriage with an older man. After 11 years of living with David, a Flight Surgeon in the US Navy, her life is predictable and uninteresting, even to herself.

When her husband finally wins a long sought-after promotion, Caroline feels she has little choice but to follow him to a new home in San Diego. There she meets Sebastian, a young man of 17 whom she first met when he was a child.

The child is now a man – in all but name. An innocent friendship leads to an illicit love that threatens their world.

For an all too brief summer, their happiness blooms.
