About the Book
To celebrate their anniversary, Sam surprises his wife Vera by bringing her back to the spot of their rural honeymoon fifty years ago.

When Sam has an unexpected heart attack, Vera is hopelessly stuck. A strange visitor and the arrival of her daughters force her to reevaluate the sum of her life and the relationship she has formed with her family.
