“ A heartfelt portrayal of a family preparing for life after David ”

The moment his granddaughter Louise is born, David learns that he has cancer.

But words were never his forte, and he'd rather keep quiet about his illness, the pain and the end that awaits him – much to the frustration of the women in his life. They wait, powerless, for the silent but inexorable end.

Neither sentimental nor cynical, this narrative holds the most delicate aspects of family life gently and openly for readers to immerse themselves.
