In this new 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 loss and grief, unable to do the work that has always sustained her–is beginning to depend far too much on her twenty-seven-year-old daughter, Tessa, and is meddling in her life, offering unsolicited and unwelcome advice. Helen’s problems are compounded by her shocking discovery that her mild-mannered and loyal husband was apparently leading a double life. The Ameses had painstakingly saved for a happy retirement, but that money disappeared in several large withdrawals made by Helen’s husband before he died. In order to support herself and garner a measure of much needed independence, Helen takes an unusual job that ends up offering far more than she had anticipated. And then a phone call from a stranger sets Helen on a surprising path of discovery that causes both mother and daughter to reassess what they thought they knew about each other, themselves, and what really makes a home and a family.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jeanie | 2/20/2014

    " Quick read. Not deep but with an unusual perspective and an interesting mother-daughter relationship. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Joanne Knibbe | 2/20/2014

    " THis novel really spoke to me because the main character, Helen, is a recent widow, and many of the thoughts she has are thoughts I have had. The plot kind of falls apart at the end, though. "

    " I could relate to this story. We quick read. "

    " I am a sucker for "plain life" stories of growth that we all have been through or experienced. This reminded me of so many facets of growing up or growing differently. Berg is a master of real-life narratives. "
