Riassunto: Are there really second chances? It is the 1970s and Mady Glazer is trying to hold herself and her three children together after the shocking death of her charismatic husband, David, in a plane crash. When they finally go on vacation to Racer’s Cove at the eastern end of Long Island, they meet Hans Panneman, a bachelor and potter, who was brought up in Africa, whose father was an avid Nazi, and who escaped his earlier life by settling here and leading the quietest of lives. They could not be more different, more representative of “the other,” as Mady is reminded by her extended Jewish family when she finds herself drawn to this quiet, puzzling man. Yet, love and ease sometimes come where we least expect them.
