It’s 1926 and Wilfred Price, purveyor of superior funerals, is newly married to the beautiful Flora Myfanwy. His brief and painful marriage to Grace is in the past, and he’s busy preparing for fatherhood.
Though he loves Flora, he senses her distance from him - are marriage and fatherhood going to be very different from how Wilfred imagined? Grace has fled from Narberth to London. But Grace has a secret, one that can’t be hidden forever. Despite Wilfred’s earnest effort to embrace the future, he is beginning to wonder if the past has too powerful a hold on him.
