This was somehow the perfect book to read while my Mom stayed with me a few days because Ruth, at 40, is reflecting on her journey away from home and a strange parental situation. (I am also 40.) How responsible are we for our parents? How invested are our parents in our success, or are they more self-motivated than that?

I'm not sure I found this book to match the publisher summary very well but I may need to reread it before discussing it on the podcast. More soon.
