I enjoyed this story of a family learning to overcome (unintentioned) hurts and learning to live together after several years apart. Since her mother died, Lidie has been living with her aunt and uncle in Brazil. Her dad and brother moved almost immediately after the funeral to the US, saying they would send for her when they could. The time has now come. They are remembering the little girl they left behind, while Lidie remembers her feelings of abandonment. After a number of false starts, their deep love for each other once again binds them together as a family. A very satisfying read.
