Summary

In the small town of Larksville, the Pike family is hopelessly out of step with the daily rhythms of life after the tragic, accidental death of six-year-old Janie Rose. Mrs Pike seldom speaks, blaming herself, while Mr Pike is forced to come out of his long, comfortable silence. Then there is 10-year-old Simon, who is suddenly without a baby sister - and without understanding why she's gone.Those closest to this shattered family must learn to comfort them - and confront their own private shadows of hidden grief. If time cannot draw them out of the dark, then love may be their only hope....
