From the Inside Flap
Mark?s mother, Molly, had been sick since he was a small boy. He was 16 when she died and he grieved as heavily as his father, Matthew, at her passing. He longed to prove himself to his father and offered to help with the family antique business, but his father seemed beyond help ? obsessed with his loss. Tilly Povey watched the boy?s lonely existence with a heavy heart.
