Margery Benson is an unhappy forty-something schoolteacher in post-WWII London. One day, prodded to the breaking point by her students' cruel mockery, she flees the school and turns her attention to a childhood dream: traveling to the tiny tropical island of New Caledonia to find a golden beetle that may or may not exist.
