Born on the exact same day as Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, Canadian Georgina Witley is invited to an eightieth birthday lunch at Buckingham Palace. On her way to the airport, Georgie drives off the edge of the road, her car plunging into a thickly wooded ravine. Injured and unable to move, she must rely on her full store of family memories and a recitation of the names of the bones in her body--an exercise from childhood--to remind her she is still alive. As Georgina lies stranded and helpless, she reflects on her role as a daughter, mother, sister, wife, and widow, on lost loves and painful secrets.

Tom and Charlie have decided to live out the remainder of their lives on their own terms, hidden away in a remote forest, their only connection to the outside world a couple of pot growers.  But one summer two women arrive: a young photographer documenting a series of catastrophic forest fires that swept Northern Ontario; the other - the elderly aunt of the one of the pot growers, fleeing one of the psychiatric institutions that have been her home since she was sixteen. She joins the men in the woods and begins a new life.  With the photographer’s help, they find a series of paintings about the fire, and begin to decipher a dead man’s history.
