Sasha is a traditionalist - now widowed, she knows she was lucky enough to be married to the most wonderful man in the world. Liam is an artist, half-in and half-out of a marriage that his own impossibly impulsive behaviour has helped tear apart. But while Sasha has been methodically building her father's Parisian art gallery into an intercontinental success story, Liam has been growing into one of the most original and striking young painters of his time. So while the two are utterly unalike - and a nine-year age difference stares them squarely in the face - the miracle of art brings them together. For Sasha, it's a matter of keeping Liam hidden from her grown children and well-heeled clientele as she commutes between New York and Paris and two thriving galleries. For Liam, it's about creating chaos out of order and bringing out the wild streak that Sasha barely knows she has - until a family tragedy suddenly alters Liam's life, forcing a choice and a sacrifice that neither one of them could have expected. Giving up now might just be the most impossible thing of all.
