Abstract:

Eira is a thirty-six and childless. She's in love with her boss- who is happily married- and she's desperate to be a mother. One morning, she finds an abandoned baby on the doorstep of the museum where she works and fantasizes about keeping it- but ultimately brings it to the local hospital. This experience sends her back to the summer she is ten years old- a precocious little girl in the country staying with her asthmatic younger brother and her moody, older, half-sister, Phyllis.

Phyllis is involved in a dangerous game of passion to which Eira is irresistibly drawn. But it's too much for one little girl to handle, and Eira is forced to grapple with secretsof a tragedy that threaten to change the course of their lives forever. Now, Eira must come to terms with the past in order to invite healing and love into her life, perhaps for the first time.
