From the Publisher:
In this stunning novel, beloved bestselling author Elizabeth Berg weaves a beautifully written and richly resonant story of a mother and daughter in emotional transit. Helen Ames–recently widowed, coping with grief, unable to do the work that has always sustained her–is beginning to depend too much on her twenty-seven-year-old daughter, Tessa, meddling in her life and offering unsolicited advice. Then Helen is shocked to discover that her mild-mannered and seemingly loyal husband was apparently leading a double life. When a phone call from a stranger sets Helen on a surprising path of discovery, both mother and daughter reassess what they thought they knew about each other, themselves, and what really makes a home and a family.
Annotation:
After Helen Ames's husband dies, she's shocked to discover he has spent all their retirement money. As she investigates the mystery of her husband's double life, she comes into not only conflict but, ultimately, a new intimacy with her grown daughter, Tessa. Bestselling author Elizabeth Berg writes with warmth, knowledge, and humor about the difficulty of really knowing the ones you love the most.
