A captivating portrait of an unconventional marriage by bestselling and critically-acclaimed author Robert Hough.

When Rose Camilleri and Scotty Larkin met, neither expected to spend a lifetime together, navigating a sometimes turbulent marriage and scraping through the process of raising a family. They first met over a cup of strong spiced coffee on a warm Toronto afternoon, when she was a recent arrival from the tiny island nation of Malta, fond of rabbit stew and Hollywood cinema. He was a thoughtful printer’s assistant recently released from juvie after stealing and swiftly totalling a stranger’s car. Even after years of marriage and two children together, Rose struggled to shake the idea that perhaps she should have held out for someone more exciting, less withdrawn. But together they would face poverty, infidelity, troubled teenagers, latent criminality, illness and cold Canadian winters and find their own kind of happiness along the way.

Hough transports the reader into the epicentre of an unconventional love story, where he draws out captivating details from the fabric of an ordinary shared lifetime to create a story that lives in the moment and takes seriously the small but vital details of everyday life.
