Something is not quite right. Preston has dealt with all sorts of difficult situations, but can he deal with this one? What is it like to have to cope with the gradual disappearance of all the abilities you have valued your entire life? We see through Preston's eyes as he copes with all the wrenching changes in his body and mind, and as he describes what he thinks and feels. But the story he tells is also a story of love, the love of two married people for each other, a love that is tested by a disease that changes Preston in the most profound way imaginable.
