Escaping from a bitter, lacerating affair with Paul Mason, Julia Stretton starts work with the Wessex Foundation - an industrially funded electronic think-tank. Her preoccupations with her past life are replaced by involvement with the future of Britain and its role in the world. The work absorbs her. And Wessex, an imagined world of the future becomes a surrogate reality.
