Then June Bouquet, an up-and-coming young model, appears at the restaurant, piercing Peter’s guard. Though she is 20 years his junior, the two begin a passionate, whirlwind courtship. When June unexpectedly becomes pregnant, Peter proposes. But over the next 20 years, the indelible sadness of his horrific memories of the past will overshadow Peter, June and their daughter Elsbeth, transforming them in shocking, heartbreaking and unexpected ways.
