Summary (From the publisher):

An old man looks back on his life and remembers Elizabeth—the only woman he ever loved. The two of them had shared their childhood, shared their summer holidays and family picnics… Yet somehow all had been lost—the joy, excitement, and hope slowly replaced by the melancholy, resignation, and inertia that comes from broken dreams. Now, at the end of his life, he is left only with the knowledge of what might have been.
