The author's description of characters thoughts and feelings and actions create real people that have depth and color and well-defined personalities. I felt like I knew them all and I like this in a book.
Excellent book. Love this author!

suddenly, with an impetuous and inquisitive young woman in the house, Joy finds herself facing long-buried secrets of her past. And Kate, too, must bridge the painful chasm between herself, her daughter, and ultimately, her mother. Coming together, these three generations discover fundamental truths about love, dutey and the unbreakable bond that unites them as mothers, daughters, and women.
