That failure has left wounds, especially for Sheila, and now they face a bigger challenge: pregnancy and impending parenthood.Edward begins penning notes to the child (ever precise, he refers to the gestating being as "Cellular Stanton") as he navigates married life with Sheila, who is unhappy and unfulfilled in Montana; a work partnership with his friend Scott Shamwell, whose own life is teetering; and the emergence of a long-buried family secret and the effect of this revelation on his relationship with his overbearing mother.Even as Edward's world expands, he must confront questions about who to let in, how much to give, the very definition of family, the fragility of hope, and the expanses of love.The latest from bestselling author Craig Lancaster (600 Hours of Edward, Edward Adrift, The Summer Son) revisits a beloved character.
