When a terrible event leads Richard Valentine back to his hometown, his one-time high school friend checks in on him, rekindling feelings that had confused them just a short time before they embarked on collegiate pursuits. Eventually marrying Sarabi, happiness was theirs. Pregnancy made it even more exciting and triplets an unexpected adventure.
But life rarely sticks to the script. The future they'd planned together was shattered by Sarabi's death shortly after bringing their two sons and daughter into the world. A single dad raising the trio, Richard had little time or energy to do much more than provide for his children. At eight years old, the kids are getting more curious about life and about their mother.
Richard responds by telling them bedtime stories that reveal much more than he bargained for. From what Sarabi was like to if Richard would ever marry again, the bittersweet memories he relives to answer their queries refresh his pain, remind him of joyous times, and free him from the unease he'd had about talking too much about their mother. Join Richard's family as they discover while love lost hurts, love also teaches and heals.
