    "Valentine Schwartz had it all: his girlfriend was the most beautiful girl in school, he came from a rich family, and his best friend, Huddie Rosen, all but worshiped him. Although Valentine wasn't the brightest student, no one could have forseen him falling off the roof of his north Toronto high school in a suit of medieval armour, and dying at the tender age of seventeen. Twenty-five years later Huddie Rosen, now living in Prague, has more important questions on his mind. Can he save his marriage and family? Should he give up the hand-to-mouth existence of a bluegrass musician and get a real job? Arriving in Toronto, Huddie begins to reconnect with his old friends, and soon finds himself wrapped up in their lives. It's a wonder anyone was able to live without him. And as his old and new lives begin to clash, he finds himself wondering which life he should choose."--Inside front cover.
