At thirty-seven, Michaela faces the terrifying prospect of widowhood... and the loss of Gerard, whose identity has greatly shaped her own. They moved from Cambridge, MA to take residency at a distinguished academic institute in New Mexico. Gerard's mysterious illness, misdiagnosed at first, has uprooted their lives, but Michaela cares desperately for Gerard in his final days as she comes to realize that her love for her husband, however fierce and selfless, is not enough to save him. -- Adapted from jacket.
