Summary
"Four scenes, four people: the husband who yearns for a son, ignorant of his own sterilty; the wife who commits adultery to fulfill her husband's wish; the father of the child; and the outsider whose actions will affect them all." -- pg 4 of cover
Summary
A man can't scrap his bloodline, can't snip the thread of immortality. Such is the strength of Joe Saul's desperate longing for a child, that he feels as if a dark curse is upon him after three unfruitful years of marriage. Yet unbeknown to him, he is sterile. His beautiful, young, devoted wife loves him so much that she secretly conceives the child of another man. But when Joe discovers her deception, his anguish is greater than ever before... This is a powerful, tragic and deeply moving tale
