How does she do it? She can get inside people's heads with such accuracy. This story rings true from page one to the end, and it is the kind of read you just can't put down. Forget sleep - read What We Keep!

In What we keep I found the context both unsettling and sad. This book is different then a mushy romance or a great mystery. This has happened in someones life somewhere.
That shame and pride would and could do this to a family is reality based. I would say that this book is well worth the time and effort it took to read it. I enjoyed it a lot.

Finally,a book that I did not like! This whole book was leading up to the last few pages,and then what a let down everything was! This whole thing was like a therapy session on why you felt like your mother ruined your life. It was interestingly written,or I would have just put it down sooner. But I really can't recommend it, although someone must have recommended it to me!

A beautifully written story about the threads mothers weave through their children's lives, the painful, joyful and lasting.
