His father has committed suicide and the funeral is the first time for five years that Crosby meets any of his uneasy family - his stepmother (who never accepted him), his stepbrother (a priest), his half-sister (a businesswoman always on the phone like Crosby) and his youngest half-brother (out of work). Crosby leaves with a sealed box of his fathers papers, a last letter and the knowledge that, as executor, he is to scatter his fathers ashes at a quiet location in the Lake District. When he has time. But what with his girlfriend thinking marriage, an ex-girlfriend thinking they should try again, a potential new love in America and his frantic business trips around Britain, as well as to Venice, Philadelphia and California, it seems everything conspires against him - or does it? Because, with any luck, even the darkest clouds have silver linings and this could be the beginning of a new life.
