Hector Martin, nearing sixty, has been recently abandoned by a much younger and wildly troubled woman who has left him with a young son. A solitary man whose interests had been whale gazing, Dvorak, and self-study, finds himself, a reluctant father, nearly paralyzed by this unexpected event.We come to our story with the tenderness of a father's "I love you" or a sad, neglected child's first troubling questions. His sister, with dutiful affection, assumes the role of surrogate mother, while her brother, sitting before an empty grave, 'celebrates' the 'death' of his wife, the source of his final betrayal. We learn that while most flee grief, others seek to transform it. We learn, too, that redemption often comes in unimaginable ways. For everyone has a story, and sometimes they overlap and collide.
