When a drunken party guest challenges him to a tennis match, Sandy Allison finds himself entangled in the monied world of Newport, Rhode Island. A former pro now down on his luck, Sandy has nothing to stake against the vintage motorcycle his opponent wagers. But then Alice DuPont—the young heiress to a mansion called Windermere—offers up her diamond necklace. With this reckless wager begins a dazzling narrative odyssey that braids together four centuries of aspiration and adversity in this renowned seaside society capital, uniting an urbane bachelor of the Gilded Age; a young Henry James, soon to make his mark on the world; an aristocratic British officer during the American Revolution; and a Quaker girl who has inherited a slave.
