About the Book
Adele is dying–and Jean is helping her. The two elderly cousins of After You have come back to the family cottage on the Findlay Islands of Ontario’s Lake Kawartha so that the stroke-ravaged Adele may die with peace and dignity amid their old girlhood haunts. But, while Jean methodically administers the required drugs, memory refuses to let either woman go gentle into the good night.
