Ignatius Perrish has a problem, but he isn’t entirely certain the problem is a bad thing. As he moves forward in his life he is constantly drawn back by memories of past experiences. Ever mourning the tragic and violent loss of the love of his life Merrin, he struggles with living his life without her.

Providing both the reader and Ignatius views of the the inner workings of the minds of his friends and family we explore how he came to be where he is.
