The hero of the novel is a butler Stevens. He has been serving most of his life in the house of the Lord Darlington, and now he is still doing the same work in the same house. But now his boss is a rich man from America, someone Mr. Farraday. The new owner is not like the previous one and his un-British behavior keeps Stevens in constant tension and more exhausting him. After receiving approval for a small vacation, Stevens goes to a meeting with the former housekeeper and his old friend, Miss Kenton. Six days' journey filled with memories of the past Stevens, working with Lord Darlington. Stevens misses his friend Miss Kenton and hopes that he might be able to convince her to return to her previous work and help him in such difficult time.

This book has so much to say to us. An untold love story that is told. A questioning of the meaning of loyalty. Human communication (even what is not said 'says' something) and actions; cultural differences; a historical moment in British
history, the life of an English butler, what 'remains' at the end of the day. Ishiguro writes 'a perfectly contained prose' that so amazingly captures the thoughts and actions of Stevens, the butler. Worthy of a nobel author.

I suppose, if one keeps searching one's past for 'turning points', one will start seeing them everywhere.
