In an intimate, surprising,emotional, and ultimately uplifting journey into her mother’s past, Gwin, the critically acclaimed author of The Queen ofPalmyra, offers both a daughter’ssoulful elegy to the mother who raised her, and a powerful tribute from onestrong female writer to another—the Erin Taylor that Minrosenever knew.
