This is the story of four women. One woman is old,but remarkably independent, who longs to be loved by a family.  One is middle-aged with love all around her, but, after years of mothering and caregiving, she has no sense of self. Their meeting has been arranged by the death of a man who touched both of their lives decades apart.

In one dramatic summer, in the midst of a provocative plot, of which the are both unaware, the two women form and unusual alliance that heals sorrows and brings enriched awareness into each of their lives as well as into the lives of the two daughters on the threshold of womanhood.
