This book is a candid family saga that weaves together conflict and redemption. Maggie is a widow, and her four adult children are navigating their own complicated lives while blaming their parents for the way they were raised. In the unexpected company of a nurse who is hired to help her while she is recovering from an accident, Maggie encounters a young person who is unlike her children in almost every respect. Disarmed by the acceptance of her young companion, Maggie sorts through the rubble of her memories and reveals secrets she has kept from her own children because she feared their judgment and rejection. Discovering the courage that comes from facing her own ghosts, Maggie mends family relationships where she can and makes room in her heart to accept her family as it is.
