Summary
  • Comatose after an act of heroism, Henri Skinner revisits memories of his British youth, while a woman from his past forges an unexpected, profound friendship with Henri's teenage son, Sam
  • Comatose after an act of heroism, ex-war reporter Henri Skinner revisits memories of his British youth. His son, Sam-- a thirteen-year old synesthete with an IQ of 144 and an appetite for science fiction-- waits by his father's bedside every day. He meets Eddie Tomlin, a woman forced to confront her love for Henri after all these years, and pre-teen Madelyn Zeidler, a coma patient and the sole survivor of a traffic accident that killed her family. As these four fight-- for hope, for patience, for life-- they face the ravages of loss and first love side by side. -- adapted from jacket
