A year without her husband has been taking a toll on Jolene Grainger. Alone, listless, and grieving, it’s difficult for her to open up to the people she once counted as friends, and it’s even harder to imagine many more years without her first love, Mickey.
Constantly buffeted by memories of the start of their love affair, Jolene turns to questionable comforts: alcohol and men. She struggles to find her new place in Markham, and every street, every corner, every building brings back old ghosts, reminding her of what she lost.
Markham was where she built a life with Mickey. Does the town have anything to offer now that she’s on her own?
