Piece by Piece by Alison Lawrence

16-year-old Steffie can’t leave the ICU where she lost her mum as her father wrestles with his grief at home. Barb is slowly losing her husband Frank as his memory dims. Frank’s doctor John can control everything in his life but his wife Jessie’s fertility. Six people are drawn together in an urban hospital in this compelling ensemble piece about sorrow, hope and the remarkable and astonishing moments of love in times of loss.
