When Ellinor addresses her best friend Anna, she does not expect a reply. Anna has been dead for 40 years, killed in the same skiing accident that claimed Henning: Ellinor's first husband and Anna's lover. Ellinor instead tells her that Georg has died - Georg who was once Anna's, but whom Ellinor came to love in her place, and whom she came to care for, along with Anna's two infant sons. Yet with Georg's death Ellinor finds herself able to cut the ties of her assumed life with surprising ease. There are some secrets - both our own and of others - that we can only share with the dead. Secrets that nonetheless shape who we are and who we love.
