Book DescriptionFor a moment, Louise is lost, wistful even. She was very close to Lillian, much closer than to Roberta and she wonders what she will recognise of the person she knew and loved so much.
Roberta Flanders is ill in hospital and wants to spend what time she has left at home, so at the end of the summer term, Louise collects her daughter Megan from school and they drive to the old farmhouse in the country, which has been in the family for generations.
Roberta's life has not been easy and once back at home and in her own bed, ghosts from the past start to reveal their secrets, causing her to question some of her beliefs.
Louise has her own ghosts to deal with. Her marriage is crumbling and she needs to re-evaluate her life. Her relationship with her mother is difficult, but she has a duty to care for her; especially now, at the end of her days. Also, she doesn't want to miss this phase of her daughter's life, for she is growing up all too quickly and soon will no longer be a child.
One evening, Megan discovers a diary. It covers her great grandmother's life from the 1930s to the 1950s and through it, she learns some of the family history and about love and loss in what was a turbulent period of the twentieth century.
As Lillian shares her story, Louise and Megan come to realise just how much the past still affects the present, although as always, Roberta has her own point of view.
