From the introduction:
She lies unconscious on the bed... occasionally stirring in her fevered dreams but for the most part still.
The Doctors have given up hope, and the family is getting desperate.
They sit around the bed, they have heard that their words might be filtering into her mind subconsciously, prompting echoes of thought. Perhaps enough to awaken her, maybe enough to say their last goodbyes. Maybe she has already abandoned this world.
Only through telling the stories of her past, reliving her memories, do they have a chance to save her…or at least give honour to her life.
