The searing and moving new novel by the award-winning author of If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things

David Carter cannot help but wish for more: that his wife Eleanor would be the sparkling Scottish girl he once found so irresistible; that his job as a museum curator could live up to the promise it once held; that his daughter's arrival could have brought he and Eleanor closer. But a few careless words spoken by his mother's friend Julia have left David restless with the knowledge that his whole life has been constructed around a lie. Struggling to make sense of his past through an archive of letters, photos and artifacts, David searches for meaning and truth, but the story always comes back to him and Eleanor, to their quiet attempts to hold together something they began before they could even understand what it was.
