Thanks for checking out the revised description appearing on the back cover of my book! I am especially grateful to my readers for taking time to send me your thoughts and feelings about the book.
Grace presided over her husband, five children, and assorted pets with the hyper-observant eye and confidence of a perfectionist. Relocating to Colorado from the northeast, she introduced modern homemaking and timeless etiquette to the less than civilized west.
Decades later she suffers a stroke. As eldest daughter, the author becomes caregiver and advocate. Struggling with her mother’s compulsion to manage other people’s lives, she realizes her own has changed forever. The memoir exposes relentless self-doubt on the tangled journey of accepting her mother and ultimately herself.
