“It’s like I’ve disappeared. I walk down the road and throw no shadow.”
“That’s what getting older does for you.”
Rose wants an exit plan that is bold and invigorating, but her three warring daughters have other ideas. We all have to die, but what makes a good death? Everyone seems to have an opinion, Rose’s three daughters, her precocious granddaughter and even the strange woman taking refuge in the garden.
