Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: May 2008
Duration: 5 hours 44 minutes
Growing up in Queens in the 1960s, Alyse Myers always yearned for more in life, as she watched her mother settle for an unhappy marriage, an unsatisfying job, and a joyless existence. Alyse rejects everything about her mother's life, but after her death she inherits a small wooden box with contents that reveal a poignant and deeply moving truth.
The dysfunctional relationship between Myers and her mother is poignant and heartbreaking at times. This is an honest look at how two very different and conflicting personalities inhabit the mother-daughter relationship and how Myers reconciles her relationship with her mother after her death.
"The greatest gift Myers' mother gave her daughter was the determination to create a different sort of life for herself."-Publishers Weekly
