From the author of the best-selling novel Film Society.

Natha is a wife and mother in her mid-thirties living in the town of Stirling, Ontario. She makes her living as a prostitute, a lifestyle that is not only tolerated but encouraged by her semiemployed husband. A series of chance encounters leads her back to her very first client, the town's elderly bookstore owner. Now dying of cancer, the man offers to pay her thousands of dollars to, among other things, "tell him about love".

The proposition forces Natha to re-evaluate the choices she has made, why she made them, and how much control she truly has over her own life.
