Lily Redfern falls in love with Sam Quaid the minute she sets eyes on him. It takes Sam Quaid a day or two longer to fall in love with her - but then he already has a wife. Lily is an award-winning television documentary maker.
Sam is an award-winning playwright. It is to plan a TV programme that they meet, and it is while shooting the film that their affair begins. She is bolder than he imagined, he more passive.
This dynamic sets the seal on their passion. They are a marvel to each other and have eyes, ears and thoughts for no one and nothing else. The outside world fades clean away.
Together they seek an immortality that only a love beyond all reason can confer. But what will happen to them when familiarity, illness and age begin to take their toll? What will survive? Until it's poignant close, the author takes us to the edge of desire, love and betrayal in his examination of what is left of us when we strip away every layer.
