Shes a librarian at the local university and hes a stock controller at a plastics company, with a fascination for the migration of the Monarch butterfly—and also for his best friends girlfriend, the copper-haired, dark-eyed Evette. Hope and Michael view the nine months ahead with honesty, anxiety, duplicity, and excitement—but very differently indeed. A network of eccentric friends—Jeffrey, Parmjit, Alex, and Preston—weaves in and out of the expectant couples lives, offering advice and testing their sometimes strong, sometimes fragile relationship. At Hopes 30th birthday party, the gift of an Austrian painting turns into an astonishing historical quest. Meanwhile Michael connects more closely with his own family, as this contemporary couple struggle to negotiate the meaning of their future together, and the possibility of an entirely new life.
