AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Maggie is a pregnant building-owner tree-changer, overwhelmed with decisions about tiles and taps — until tragedy strikes. Her small, private grief sits alongside the sudden, very public death of the ‘People’s Princess.’ Eventually, the flowers wilt and the condolence cards stop, and the tribute songs don’t play on the radio, but Maggie can’t stop wondering — how do you keep a small memory alive?'
