Sometimes, t's impossible to part with the things we love the most...
When Amy Ashton's world came crashing down twelve years ago, she started a collection. It began as a box filled with memories of happier times - an ashtray to remind herself of the boy she loved, a china bird, an aquamarine bottle, a Tuscan red pot. The objects that some might throw away, but to Amy represent a life that could have been. Because, if there's one thing life has taught her, it's easier to love things than people.
Now that box of memories has turned into a house overflowing with all her precious things. Soon there will be no room for Amy at all. But when a new family move in next door with two young boys, Amy's carefully managed life starts to unravel, leading her to question whether the future she thought she'd lost might still be there for the taking.
