A story of love, its occasional absence and the emotional tensions we generate in its maintenance.
At the story's center is a Aurora Greenway, a woman who makes the world revolve around her. Shrewd yet inwardly tender, spirited but vulnerable, she attracts a series of dedicated protectors.
But in the final analysis she learns about love not from a person but from an event -- in this case loss, specifically the death of her daughter.
