    Description
    When Julia Lambert settles into her idyllic Maine house for the summer‚ she plans to spend the time tending her fragile relationship with her father‚ a retired but demanding neurosurgeon‚ and her gentle mother‚ who is descending‚ unnoticed‚ into Alzheimer's. But a shattering revelation intrudes: her youngest son Jack‚ far from being a charming maverick‚ has spiralled into heroin addiction.

    In attempt to save him‚ Julia calls on all the members of her loose-knit family: her elderly parents; remarried ex-husband; detached sister; and combative eldest son. As heroin sweeps through each of their lives‚ with its impersonal and devastating energy‚ it drags the family into a world in which deceit‚ crime and fear are part of daily life.

    In her cool‚ elegant prose‚ Robinson delivers a novel of loss and love that is complex‚ surprising and breathtaking in its pace.
