Rather reminiscent of Edna O'Brien, this un-named narrator rents a dilapidated lodge in rural Ireland in order to work on his book and try to decipher a letter of Isaac Newton.
He becomes drawn into the family who live in the big house, starting an affair with Ottilie whilst lusting after married Charlotte. His work dwindles to a halt as he becomes more entangled with them.
Apparently the third book in a trilogy, though the previous two I believe were set in Newton's time, so I didn't feel I'd missed out by not reading them before.
