At last, at a performance of the opera `Don Carlo', she realises the true cost of letting memory dictate the course of her life.From the author of `The Speckled People' the uplifting and heartbreaking, `Every Single Minute' is the story of a candid friendship, full of affection and humour, and of reconciliation, hard-won at long last.
