Now a major motion picture starring Kate Beckinsale and Sam Rockwell due for release March 7, 2008. - - Arthur Parkinson is fourteen during the dreary winter of 1974, experiencing the confusing pangs of adolescence and the pain of his parents' divorce. His world is shattered further by the sudden and violent death of Annie Marchand, his beloved former babysitter. Narrated by the adult Arthur, who continues to be haunted by memories, the story of a young man's unraveling family and the circumstances leading up to Annie's death form the backdrop for an intimate tale of the price of love and belonging, while told in a spare, translucent, and unexpectedly tender voice.
