Summary
"Emilia and her husband John struggle to keep their lives together after the unexpected SIDS death of their 3-day old daughter Isabel. Complicating the situation is John's son Jack who primarily lives with his mother Carolyne a doctor. Emilia has the responsibility of collecting Jack from his school where she encounters snide glances and whispers from some other mothers - Emilia and John's relationship began as an office affair whist he was still married. Worse still, as hard as she tries to be a good step-parent to the boy, her efforts are hindered by the fact that Jack serves as his mother's mouthpiece, and at times speaks in a very off-hand and cruel way about Isabel's death." -- Back cover
