Synopsis: When Ben Carmichael dies of a heart attack on a business trip to Singapore, his wife, Dee -- now his widow -- is devastated. She is left financially as well as emotionally impoverished and though her friends, the eccentric Josie, the stalwart Madeleine and the mysterious Algy, all support her in their own way, maintaining her home and caring for her four children is still an uphill struggle.
Then she returns to India and is forced to reconcile the memories of the city she loved twenty years ago -- the elegant Cuffe Parade, beautiful Back Bay with its dolphins, the Ritz hotel with its gregarious barmen -- with the high-rise blocks and building sites that have sprung up in their place. Slowly coming to terms with the development, Dee wonders what else she has been refusing to accept. Could it be true that before Ben's death, her feelings for him had also changed? Can she face the possibility that the carefree lifestyle they enjoyed in India might have deteriorated into distrust and insecurity? Only by confronting the demons of the past can Dee let go of the grief that has been crippling her for more than a decade and distinguish the genuine treasures of her past from the fool's gold to build a new life.
