Anna remembers her mother leaving, and people saying she died, but she and her brother Peter didn't get to attend the funeral. They both think there is something more to the story, and this book is about how they grow up and try to figure out this mystery that is their mother.

She starts the book talking about the fog that she remembers so vividly from the day her mother left. I think this is an interpretation of the whole fog of their lives concerning their mom and their background. The whole time I was reading I felt like I was waiting for some conclusion that never came. The book was more about how this not knowing shaped their lives as children, and then again as adults. The narrator goes back and forth from being a kid and talking about the things happening at the time, and being an adult and going to look for any proof of who she was, and who her mother could have been.

I really liked this book, it gives you the choice to come up with your own conclusion. And leaves you wanting more.
