What other readers are saying about this title:
Mary B. said:
A remarkable little book that can be read in one sitting. A wistful recollection of the cocktail hour between husband and wife in which they exchanged their thoughts, hearts and souls, and which she recalls during his illness and after he is gone. Interspersed with the lovely writing are line drawings illustrating the rooms in which this love story played out. Somber, reflective, touching, but never mawkish. Read it once, twice, and then perhaps buy it, as I did.

Fictionalized telling of the relationship between Godwin and composer Robert Starer, looking back over the small shared moments in their lives, particularly centering on their daily cocktail hour where they would discuss their work in the arts. Godwin also shows her attempt to begin life again after Starer death. Rachel
