Synopsis

Death always comes as a bit of an unpleasant surprise, even when you‖re 72 and have a weak heart like John. Even more unpleasant is finding out that the person you were married to for 37 years might have somehow forgotten to tell you he had an illegitimate son. Which is exactly the situation Eve finds herself in one day after her husband‖s funeral. While she might have liked to put the evidence in plastic bags and thrown it out together with John‖s other things, her daughter Nora is determined to find out the truth. The two embark on a quest for the mysterious Thomas, placing together the fragments of not only John‖s, but their own lives as well. (excerpt)
