Adam's life has been ruined by war . . . A veteran of the Iraq conflict who has suffered such extensive bodily trauma that he can only really survive by means of a mechanical skeleton. Marianna's has been ruined by men . . . A woman who has had to flee the country after her husband lied to the wrong people. John Philip's by too much money . . . A man who inherits the lost erotic drawings of J. M. W. Turner in the evening of his own life. Rodney Hall presents the interwoven story of three people experiencing a period of life they never thought possible and, perhaps, should never have been granted at all . . . Each sets out along a separate path, seeking a stolen season in which they can live on their own terms.
