Read in March, 2011

I loved this novel! Written in such an honest, no holds barred way, this fictional account of a young mother struggling to raise her children, deal with cancer, all while married to an uninvolved, emotionally detached man, just touches the heart on so many levels.Many years later, as Ann is trying to nourish a relationship with her only grandchild Ellie, she has to grapple with her own long held secrets, along with secrets she learns about other family members. Add to the story that Ann is dealing with some signs of having early dementia, and you have a heart wrenching story. There are so many elements to this story, and so many opportunities for the female reader to identify with the feelings Ann wrestles with.
