"…my heart no longer remains with me, and without a heart, how can it be that I am alive?"
For Kurt Nash, CIA agent, dealing with loss starts with keeping a promise to scatter Nick Roston's ashes in Pemberton, Western Australia, after he failed to save his friend's life during an assignment in Europe. When he encounters Nick's fiancée, Lucy, who has returned home for Christmas, it allows Kurt the chance to explain Nick's disappearance. However, it also re-opens Kurt's confusion about his place in the world and his sexuality, while still fighting the terror of the event which saw him captured and tortured, and which nearly killed him. Lucy and her brother, Don, open their home to him, developing a friendship which will challenge the views and preconceptions each of them holds.
From Pemberton to London to Cyprus to the US, and finally back to Pemberton, Kurt starts to face his grief, guilt, and fears, and the possibilities of a new future open up for him, for Lucy, and for Don, which none of them expects.
