In the country, where his fifteenth summer has burned the life from the grass, Daniel Fairbrother is searching. Looking for something that will make tomorrow seem worth the effort. Something that will fix the rot in his family tree.
He works in the Dutch woman's garden. Eddy's eighty-six. She can read Daniel's mind. She has a tattoo, a history, and can make music with her farts.
In a shady corner of Eddy's garden, Daniel finds something growing. . .
But something is burning.
