A story about navigating the hazards of sex and marriage.
Sonia, thrown by a broken mid-life marriage, flees to Sweden to stay with her long-time Swedish friend Inge. Forty-nine, a professional woman in Washington, D.C., she’s run the gamut from open relationships to an attempt at a normal marriage with Ben. Ben’s got a restraining order against her after she broke into her ex-house, yet he wants her back. Her life’s imploding and she’s failed to get love, sex, and respectability lined up.
Inge’s had her own take on “normal,” having been a Swedish trophy wife in America. Now her mother Eleanor is fading, feeling robbed by life as a refugee and an illegitimate child whose father was hidden from her. Sonia shares her own history of broken taboos to draw Eleanor out. Inge’s brother Ammon, a Sami/Laplander, sparks Sonia’s bruised heart with tormenting temptation, especially after he rescues her from a foolish misadventure.
By chance, Sonia brings the answer to their family secret.
