The story opens with 84-year-old Florence Claybourne lying on the floor in her apartment at Cherry Tree Home for the Elderly.  She fell, she can’t get up, and her ‘panic button’ is on the other side of the room.  As she waits for someone to rescue her, she reflects on her life-long best friend Elsie, some mysteries and secrets from their past, and the appearance of a new resident at Cherry Tree who bears a striking resemblance to a young man who supposedly died sixty years ago and is bound to blow the lid off  their secrets. Cannon weaves, with subtle hints that lodge in your subconscious and ultimately, a tapestry where every thread is vital to the whole.
