Olivia is a young mother coping with the loss of her autistic son. She comes to Nantucket to separate herself from the life she led as wife and mother, and to start afresh, even as she tries to make sense of her tragedy: why was Anthony born autistic, only to live such a short life? Beth, a stay-at-home mother of three, is struggling with a separation after discovering her husband's long-term infidelity. To bring order to her tumultuous feelings, she rekindles a passion for writing, determined to find her own voice again. But curiously, she finds herself channelling the voice of an unknown autistic boy, exuberant in his perceptions of the world around him. Can she share the voice with Olivia? Is it Anthony?
