About the Book

If we are lucky, we have a person in our lives who guides and nurtures us through the maze of adolescence and young adulthood. For Maxi Shelton, that person is her grandmother, Kathleen Doyle. Now Kathleen has suffered a stroke and Maxi has come home from college to act as health care advocate for the woman with whom she has lived since she was fourteen.

Maxi, although terrified at the thought of losing her grandmother, is determined to honor Kathleen’s wishes. Her high powered, but emotionally repressed mother, Laura, has other ideas. Laura and Maxi spar with each other while Maxi’s Aunt Rose tries to broker a tentative peace agreement between her sister and her niece. As the family tries to come to terms with their impending loss, a compassionate nurse suggests a pathway to reconciliation that sends all three women on a life changing journey of remembrance.
