Emily and Sarah have to clean out the family home after their mother is debilitated by a stroke. They find her diary and are stunned to find that the story of their parents' lives together is not what they thought it was.

This reminds me of Bridge of Clay and how all parents hold back pieces of their real lives from their children. Also, it is about how we do come to a point in our maturity when it is gratifying to learn who our parents really are. Reminds me to be transparent and honest even when that is painful and it is easier to cover up the "messy" parts of life.… (mais)

Excellent read! Loved the characters. Learned to live your life now and not worry about everyone else.
