A marriage tested to breaking point by grief and guilt—can it survive?
Having suffered in silence since the tragic death of their young daughter, Lola and Duncan Drummond’s last chance to rediscover their love for one another lies in an anniversary trip to California’s idyllic Napa Valley.

As Lola works on the house she experiences the liberating power of letting go. But just as her life begins to open up, Duncan’s begins to fall apart. Can a parent ever truly move on from the loss of a child? And, after so much heart break, can Lola and Duncan learn to love again?
