Alice Lightfoot is far too young to be a widow and a grandmother. Now, nearlyÂ 3 years after her husband's death, the world suddenly begins turning at a disconcertingly faster pace. Over the course ofÂ four very disturbing weeks, Alice finds herself dashing hurriedly from one adventure to another, and begins to ask herself whether this is how life is to be now she's on her own. There doesn't seem to be space to decide what Alice wants for herselfâdoes she want a man around, or would independence give her the full life she craves? Alice is a woman at a turning-point, coming out from the protection of a long marriage into the hurly-burly of the wider world. She has far-reaching choices to make and the seriously unexpected to face.
