In this beautifully written and deeply moving book, Rita Moir draws strength from her father's words as she deals with a relationship with an abusive man, the challenges of living on her own in the country, and the disappointment of another thwarted romance. In turn, she offers the same strength to her father when he must confront his own illness, loss of memory, and death.

Through these experiences, Moir faces the reality of death and encounters her windshift line--the boundary where opposing forces collide, twist and swirl--and she comes out on top. In the end, she transforms loneliness, fear, and loss into life-affirming power and renewal.
