When Alice and Joseph meet, they fall quickly into a tentative but sincere relationship. She is a nurse, he a house painter, and while both are still young and hopeful about this new love, each of them carries an emotional burden. Alice's father has been a yawning absence all her life, and just recently her beloved grandmother--who helped to raise her-passed away. For his part, Joseph refuses to speak about his experiences as a soldier in Northern Ireland, and Alice suspects that his general reticence hides an even more deeply troubled past. In this powerful story of guilt and privacy, Seiffert asks: To love someone, must you know everything about them?

I enjoyed this novel about the relationship between Alice and Joseph. Alice's grandfather and Joseph both suffer the traumatic after effects of war - one man in Kenya, one in Northern Ireland. I really appreciated that the author provided a realistic rather than the standard happy ending.
