Summary:

Prequel set in Adam's college years in Boston. A formal ball, a friendly social, a red dress, a flamingo, and the sea, the sea! The beginning of Adam's complicated love life, and, somewhere beyond the sea, someone's first tentative steps into becoming The Queen. Can be read by itself, yet it is a part of the “Art” series, and best read after “The Art of Setting Priorities.” # 5 in the series.
