Recently widowed and coping badly with grief, novelist Helen Ames can no longer do the work that has always sustained her. She has also come to depend too much on her 27-seven-yearold daughter Tessa, calling on her constantly and meddling in her life. But in this 2009 novel by the author of Open House, Helen is shocked to discover that her mild-mannered and seemingly loyal husband was apparently leading a double life. When a phone call from a stranger sets Helen on a surprising path of discovery, both mother and daughter reassess what they thought they knew about each other, themselves, and what really makes a home and a family. "[Elizabeth Berg's] warmth, humor, and forgiving eye for human nature, mixing wry observation with heartwarming moments, make this a pleasant read."—Library Journal
