This first novel takes us on a journey through the centre of an explosive, illicit relationship that drives into the fragile heart of a family. A young girl and an older man succumb to an incendiary love affair at an unpayable price. As lies are revealed, the characters must pick up the fragments of whom they thought they were and turn towards an awareness of whom they have now become. They must explore the truth of love and the cost of passion. In deft strokes and a raw unique language, the story moves towards its startling conclusion as the characters examine the difference between their desires and their expectations, what it means to love and to be loved, and, ultimately, what it means to be alone.
