A debut novel about love, grief, friendship, and how well we really know the people closest to us.

When Eva wakes up one morning to discover that her husband has died in his sleep, she is overwhelmed: with anger, with disbelief, with fear. For Adam was only thirty-one, a brilliant doctor with no health issues. They were supposed to grow old together. In the aftermath, attempting to confront the agony of her loss, Eva starts to uncover the story of her marriage, delving into those parts of her husband’s life to which she never before had access. But the secrets she finds are not what she expected.
