Another powerful audiobook about modern life and all its challenges from the acclaimed author of The Comfort of Others and Away from You.
Since their youngest son, Teddy, was diagnosed with a life-defining illness, Anna has been fighting: against the friends who don't know how to help, against the team assigned to Teddy's care who constantly watch over Anna's parenting, against the school who refuse to let Teddy start until special mobility specifications have been met and against the impulse to put Teddy above all else - including his older brother, the watchful, sensitive Isaac.
And now Anna can't seem to stop fighting against her husband, the one person who should be able to understand but who somehow manages to carry on when Anna feels like she is suffocating under the weight of all the things that Teddy will never be able to do. As Anna helplessly pushes Tom away, he can't help but feel the absence of the simple familiarity that should come so easily and must face the question: is it worse to stay in an unhappy marriage or leave?
