On This Day

On This Day

Description

<p>Warren is eighteen. His sister, Joan, is twenty. Their father has died of cancer, and their mother has committed suicide -- they're on their own, in a small coastal town in Maine, under desperate emotional circumstances, with the holidays approaching.</p><p>Their situation worsens as their father's partner ruthlessly strips them of financial interest in the plant nursery they had owned together and a ghoulish uncle and aunt try to exploit them. Things grow even more complicated as Warren becomes increasingly puzzled by his attraction to a beautiful young single mother who used to work for his father.</p><p>Told from Warren's point of view, <i>On This Day</i> is not only a moving story of two young people's struggle to make a place and a home for themselves, but a consideration of memory -- the necessity to face the secrets of a family's dark past in order to exorcise them.</p>
