A story that reveals the devastating effects of mistaking silence for peace and feeling shame for inevitable circumstances. Eva and Simon have spent most of their adult lives together. He is a physician and she is a teacher, and they have three grown daughters and a comfortable home. Yet what binds them together isn't only affection and solidarity but also the painful facts of their respective histories, which they keep hidden even from their own children. But after the abrupt dismissal of their housekeeper and Simon's increasing withdrawal into himself, the past can no longer be repressed.

If you have ever wanted to read the mind of an eighty-year-old, scatter-brained woman who is obsessed with everything she ever did wrong, this is just the ticket.

Quiet domestic drama or mystery. Well written.
