This short novel is inspired by a love affair she had with the son of her second husband. We discover there the first love emotions of Phil and Vinca. It is the end of childhood and the initiation to sensuality and love which are accomplished more or less in pain. Phil, 16, and Vinca, 15, have known each other since childhood, but this summer, during their holidays in Brittany, it’s different. Adolescence plunges them into a deaf confusion. The young heroine, Vinca, is quite moving in a role where she dominates, by her wisdom, her young partner, Phil. Vinca suspects his friend’s nocturnal visits to their charming neighbor much older than him: the lady in white. But she chooses to remain silent. She learns to suffer from Phil’s betrayal.
