Summary
As a man named Daniel slowly fades away in a London hospice, he tells his friend Maggie that he was an anonymous sperm donor who fathered four children--a revelation that unexpectedly brings together a group of strangers, in this powerful celebration of family, friendship, life, and love
Summary
In a hospice in Bury St Edmunds, a man called Daniel is slowly fading away. His friend Maggie sits with him every day; she holds his hand and she listens to the story of his life, to his regrets and to his secrets. And then he tells her about the children he has never met and never will. He talks of them wistfully. His legacy, he calls them. Lydia, Dean and Robyn don't know each other. Yet. And they are all facing difficult changes. Lydia is still wearing the scars from her traumatic childhood and although she is wealthy and successful, her life is lonely and disjointed. Dean is a young man, burdened with unexpected responsibility, whose life is going nowhere. And Robyn wants to be a doctor, just like her father, a man she's never met. Three people leading three very different lives. All lost. All looking for something. But when they slowly find their way into each other's lives, everything starts to change.
