Publisher Description:
"A novel you devour in one sitting: elegiac, beautiful, and very strong." --Herman Koch, author of The Dinner
Roxy's life is turned upside down when her husband is killed in a car crash, his naked body found entangled with his lover's. Twenty-seven-year-old Roxy is left behind with their daughter, her husband's personal assistant, and their babysitter to come to terms with this shameful end to her marriage. Looking to break free from her grief, Roxy takes the three of them on an impromptu road trip filled with darkly humorous observations about loss, parental responsibility, and the expiration date of love. Through masterful dialogues and in her trademark lucid style, Gerritsen introduces the reader to a woman whose response to grief both shocks and endears.
