After the sudden loss of his wife, Michael Turner moves to London to start again. Living on a quiet street in Hampstead, he develops a close bond with the Nelson family next door: Josh, Samantha and their two young daughters.
The friendship at first seems to offer the prospect of healing, but then a devastating event changes all their lives, and Michael finds himself bearing the burden of grief and a terrible secret.
Owen Sheers lives near Hay-on-Wye and is a good friend of The Story of Books. Our production of his play Unicorns, Almost will be broadcast on BBC Radio 3 on 10th May at 7.30pm.
