ABOUT
THE BOOK

It begins with a painting won in a raffle: fifteen sunflowers, hung on the wall by a woman who believes that men and boys are capable of beautiful things.

And then there are two boys, Ellis and Michael, who couldn’t be closer. And the boys become men,
and then Annie walks into their lives, and it changes nothing and everything.
