Summary
Master undertaker Richard Connable is called out of retirement by a group of powerful men who want him to disguise the evidence that a major financier has committed suicide, prompting his wife to look back over their sometimes troubled marriage, recalling the places they lived and the people they met in pursuit of Richard's profession
Summary
Revolutionizing traditional mortuary practices, Richard Connable develops a method of preserving the human dignity of the deceased. His wife Lucy struggles to keep their marriage whole as she stands by his side and supports him while he builds a reputation and becomes the premier undertaker for the rich and powerful. But when Richard is called from retirement to discretely disguise the suicide of an important American financier, Lucy sets out on a secret mission too
